  • Heat a kadai and dry roast the sesame seeds till it splutters. Remove in a plate.

  • Heat 1 tsp of ghee. Add a fistful of poha / thick aval and roast patiently it turns white and puffs up well. If you try to break it, it will be crunchy. Remove in the sesame seeds plate. 

  • Again add 1 tsp of ghee. Add fistful of poha and roast till crispy and puffy. Remove in the plate. Repeat the procedure until all the poha is roasted.

  • Switch off the flame and add the roasted chana dal. Mix well. Let it roast in the heat of kadai. Remove in the plate.

Note

  • For variations, you can add powdered sugar instead of jaggery.
  • You can also add some ghee roasted cashews.
  • I have not deep fried the poha to make a low calorie version. You can also deep fry in oil and ghee mixture to make it rich.
  • As it is not deep fried, this mixture turns soggy soon. So store it in an air tight box and consume within a day.
