Aval Uppuma

Saw this recipe in a tv Prog. and tried it ...It is a very healthy dish ...loved the idea of adding ponnangani keerai to the aval uppuma .

Ingredients needed :
  • Aval / Rice flakes (Thick ) - 2 cups
  • Ponanganni keerai  - 1 bunch
  • Onion (Chopped finely)   - 1
  • Groundnuts - handful
  • Coconut grated - little
  • Mustard seeds
  • Urid dhal
  • Jeera
  • Dried red chillies- 1
  • Chili powder - little
  • Turmeric powder 
  • Lime juice
  • Salt
  • Oil 
Method :

Remove each leaves from the stem and clean it and set aside ...though bit a tedious job , but worth doing it ... In a bowl add the aval and add enough water , till the aval gets immersed well ...then immediately , drain all the water fully and set aside for 10 or 15 mins.Heat a kadai and add little oil and temper it with mustard seeds + urid dhal + jeera + groundnuts + dried red chili then saute the onions well and then add the ponnangani keerai and saute it for few mins ...
to the fried onions + ponnangani keerai add little salt + chili powder + aval and mix it well for few mins. till done ..then switch off the flame, and add the grated coconut + lime juice and stir it well ...
