My all time favorite breakfast is rice flakes (we call it aval in tamil.. think its poha in hindi).. it is so easy to cook and tastes yummy too. so, you will always find packets of aval at home.. i pick up the slightly thicker ones, because the thin flat ones soak too fast, and become gooey when cooked.. these are good, as the flakes can be seen individually, yes, it does take a wee bit longer to soak, n get soft, but wat the heck when end result is worth it…. 🙂

Different ways of making it..quick n easy- for breakfast or dinner or an in between snack… healthy, nutritious and filling…

1.
Soak a cup of poha in water (for abt 5mins )
Take a kadai, add some oil- mustard seeds, urad daal, and some hing.
Now add the poha to this
Salt is then sprinkled..
Toss for a minute, and its ready to eat
can eat with curd, pickles, chutneys or anything….

2.
