How to make poha mixture
Start the process of making poha mixture by putting an oval pan on the gas.Let it be dry completely and then add oil.Don’t make the oil too hot as we have to roast the peanuts,chillies and curry leaves without buring it.
Now as the oil becomes medium hot, add the peanuts and use a spatula yo gently stir it.Peanuts pops, so make sure to put a lid for few seconds until it gets roasted well.Add the chopped green chilies and curry leaves.
Wait for few seconds to deep fry the green chilli and curry leaves to avoid any moisture.It will help keep the poha mixture fresh and crispy for longer.Now add the poha into it.keep mixing it.The only effort to make this lesser oil poha mixture lies at this stage where you have to stir the mixture continuously to make it crispy.
With time you will feel the Poha becoming lighter and crispy in texture.The edges will start yo become puffed up.Keep stirring until it turns soft golden and crispy.At this point sprinkle some salt.
