Recipe for Savory Flaked Rice


3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1/4 teaspoon asafetida
1 small dried red chili; halved
1 serrano chili; minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried curry leaves
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
6 whole black peppercorns
3 whole cloves
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup diced boiling potato
3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
3/4 cup frozen peas; thawed
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
2 cup poha (thick flaked rice)
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoon unsweetened grated coconut


In a heavy large saucepan, heat oil over high heat. Add mustard seeds and cover immediately. When seeds stop popping, add asafetida. Immediately reduce heat to medium. Add chilies, cumin, curry leaves, ginger, peppercorns and cloves and stir 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Add potato and turmeric. Cover and cook until potato is almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add peas. Cover and cook 5 minutes.

Combine salt, sugar and juice. Stir until salt and sugar are dissolved. In a colander, rinse poha under cold water. Place poha, juice mixture, cilantro and coconut in a saucepan and stir gently, being careful not to break rice flakes. Transfer to platter and serve.
