Poha/Beaten Rice / Aval  - 1 Cup
Turmeric Juice  - 2tbps
Turmeric Powder  - 1tsp
Peanuts - 2 tsps
Mustard  - 1 tsp
Channa dal  - 1 tsp
Asafoetida  - a pinch
Green Chillies  - 3
Curry Leaves  and Coriander leaves
Salt to taste

METHOD OF PREPARATION :1.Soak aval/beaten rice for about 5-10 minutes. Drain and squeeze out the excess water. Soaking time differs for different type of aval. Hence soak accordingly .I used the smaller thick ones .Over soaked aval will become sticky. After squeezing ,aval should have its shape and texture but little soft.

Heat oil in a kadai.Once hot, add mustard seeds , channa dal,peanuts and chillies and saute till peanuts gets roasted well not burnt.Then add asafoetida and curry leaves. 

3. Then ,add lemon juice with turmeric powder and saute it for a minute. Followed by adding salt and aval. 

4.Mix the aval well for 2 minutes till the aval gets the flavour of lemon. Garnish it with finely chopped onion and coriander leaves.
