Green Chilli Poha (Olli Mirsangi Phovu)

Poha is one of the main items of Konkani breakfast/snack. Depennding upon individual taste there are many varieties in it. There are some types on this blog – kalayil phovu, jeere kalayil phovu. The one with green chillies is another very popular type. These pohas are not heated, they are just mixed with hand. So thin poha is most suitable for these.

Some people do not add sugar and hence diabetics can also enjoy it. But many people like it when sugar is added. When my children were small, we used to make two batches, one with sugar for them and another without sugar for all the elders at home.

Ingredients:
1 cup thin phoha
1/2 cup grated coconut(fresh/frozen)
2 tea spn green chilli pieces

Sprinkle a handful of water and mix well (do not add too much water). Serve immidiately .You can eat it with sev or any spicy mixture or on its own.
