Brown Poha Dosa (Instant)

The place where these poha come from in my house (Konkan- Maharashtra), they simply sprinkle a handful of them in a piping hot cup of tea. Then sip it and chew along..Simply divine. I wonder how the best dishes are at times enjoyed in the most natural and basic form. Back here in city..we are not even satisfied with one variation of the same ingredient...Just a thought. I am not going to give up experimenting.

1 cup Brown Poha (Beaten brown rice) 
1 tbsp Chickpea flour
1 tbsp Semolina
1 tbsp All Purpose Flour
1 tbsp Rice Flour
1 tbsp Curd
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 green onions finely chopped
1 inch ginger crushed
2 tbsp coriander finely chopped
2 tspn Cumin seeds
Salt to taste
2 cups warm water
Oil to cook
1)Soak all ingredients in a large bowl and let it stand for 10 min.
2)On a hot griddle, spread some oil to coat the pan.
3)When it is hot, reduce flame, pour a ladle spoon on the griddle. Spread it around
4)When it is nice and brown , flip it over.
5)Let it cook on high flame for another 2 min.

Serve hot.

Pradnya..finding brown poha is a job in itself..I get it at the organic fair ..which is held once a year...the dosa looks real good..but guess you will have to parcel the brown pohas:))

It's looking like rava dosa and very healthy one. We get brown poha here, so should try this recipe for sure.

The dosa looks delicious. However, sprinkling brown poha over tea sounds like something that would be an acquired taste.

I love brown poha, I just wash them up and add a bit of jaggery to them and eat them as such. They taste yummy that way.
