Milagu aval
Last year I got few requests from readers to share different types of poha recipes( Aval in tamil & Malayalam, Avalakki in Kannada, Rice flakes in English, Poha in Hindi, Atukulu in telugu). I have never thought or tried any recipes beyond my lemon aval/Lemon poha. When I got those requests, I started looking for varieties of poha recipes. At that time, my MIL taught me this easy pepper poha (Milagu aval in Tamil) recipe for breakfast & dinner. Its a super easy and super quick recipe that needs just 10 minutes to prepare.We usually make pepper idiyappam but never tried with poha. As Sendhil loves pepper based recipes, it was like double bonanza for me.. No side dish is required for this recipe. So I make this atleast twice in a week. Working women and bachelors can try this recipe if you like pepper recipes. You would love its taste and simplicity. Its is a no onion no garlic Jain recipe. So it can be prepared during festival seasons or for vrat/fasting days.Ok, lets see how to make this easy and yummy breakfast/dinner recipe using poha – Milagu aval/Pepper Poha !! I will try to share more poha recipes in my upcoming posts.
