  1. Wash the poha (aval) and drain the water.
  2. Coarsely grind the black pepper and cumin seeds and I added the curry leaves to this as the kids will eat.
  3. In a pan, add the oil and the mustard seeds and when it crackles add the cashew nuts and when it turns brown add the ground pepper cumin powder.
  4. Saute for a minute in low flame , without getting it burnt.
  5. Add salt and and mix it nicely and keep in low flame for minutes.
  6. If you feel little dry sprinkle 1-2 tblsp of water and mix well.
  7. always serve hot.


  1. Instead of cashew nuts you can add peanuts too.
  2. You can add few drops of ghee in the last to enhance the flavour.
