Beaten Rice / Poha Cereal... a wholesome breakfast | Poha Recipes

I am always on the lookout or rather say "hunt" for easy and healthy breakfast recipes. We usually prefer oatmeal / sathu maavu kanji (a homemade protein powder... recipe coming soon) / wholewheat sandwiches to the regular dosas/idlis /aapams. So easy protein packed breakfast recipes are something that always fall under my search list.
I have adapted this recipe from my SIL, tweaked it by giving my own touches. SIL who is from Tenkasi, Tamilnadu prefers to have this as her boost-up snack. I have seen her eating poha soaked in sweetened milk whenever she feels hungry, says its best when compared to the fried snacks. And I agree to that. This recipe is kinda hybrid to hers.

~*What U Need*~
Poha / Beaten rice - 1 cup
Water - few sprinkles

Ripe Banana - 1
Walnuts, cashews, almonds - as needed
Dates - few
Dried figs - 1 or 2
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar/Honey - to taste(optional)

How I Made it:
Clean the poha. Sprinkle some water and mix well till all the granules are soaked well. Rest for half an hour.
Mix sugar with milk. I usually skip the sugar as the banana itself adds sweetness. When serving, place the poha in a bowl, top it with mashed banana, nuts, dates and figs. Add milk, allow to rest for 10 mins, give it a stir and then serve.

...wholesome and satisfying breakfast.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
