On Ashadha Amavasya is also called as Deepaanvit Amavasya lamps are worshipped. This simple and delicious recipe where Whole Wheat Flour Lamps are used to worship lamps. A simple and healthy steamed recipe from Maharashtra underlines that even lamp is worshipable.
One of my favourite breakfasts includes “Dahi Pohe” or “Masur Avalakki”. There is nothing more soothing than a bowlful of avalakki and coffee!! Absolute heaven!! Of course I will be willing repeat performance in the evening too!!
Not only tasty but ready in a jiffy, ingredients always available. I always fall back on this old favourite when short of ideas too!
1 cup avalakki/pohe/poha (I generally use the thick variety)
½ cup curds
1 tbsp fresh cream
1 green chilli
3-4 curry leaves
1. Wash the pohe in a colander under running . Let it stand till you get the curds ready.
2. In the mixer add the curd, chilli and a little coriander,and the curry leaves and make butter milk.
3. When all the chilli is ground add fresh cream and salt. Run the mixer on low-speed once more.
4. Just before serving mix the pohe and curds.
