red chilli – 3-4

groundnuts – 1 tbsp

grated coconut- 1/2 cup

coriander leaves – 2 tsp

turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

salt and sugar to taste

Take oil for takda , add groundnuts fry until light brown now add mustard seeds, coriander/cumin crushed, chillies cut into pieces. fry for a minute now add hing, turmeric and remove from fire and pour into a bowl. To this add sugar, salt and coconut and mix well crushing the chillies. Once it is mixed well combine the poha, onions and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve immediately.

note: This dish is prepared with thin poha, so poha must not be washed as it will get mushy. The moisture in coconut and oions is enough to soak the poha.  If using medium poha then sprinkle water as needed.
