Salt to taste
Cilantro (Dhania Leaves) – 2 tbsp (finely chopped)

Wash the Poha in water and strain it. Leave it in the strainer for 15 to 20 minutes so that all the water strains away.

In the same pan, add the remaining oil. When it becomes hot, add Onion, Green Chillies and Curry Leaves.
Sauté those till the Onion become translucent. Add Poha, Salt, Haldi Powder and Dhania leaves.
