Atukula Upma/Thick poha upma

Atukulu/poha upma is an easy breakfast when time is a constraint. Its done in 15-20 mins. This is our breakfast today. First time for my son and he loved it :) .

2 cups atukulu/poha(choose the thick poha as they won't become mushy quickly)
1 tbsp roasted peanuts
4-5 cashews halved
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tsp chana dal/senaga pappu
1 tsp aavalu/mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
1 small onion finely chopped
3-4 small green chillies slit and rubbed with a little salt
6-8 curry leaves
2 dried red chillies torn
1/4 inch ginger chopped
1/2 tbsp cilantro chopped
1&1/2 tsps lemon/lime juice
A pinch of tumeric
Salt to taste

Method :
Wash the poha and saok it in water for 3 mins. Drain without water and keep aside. Heat 2 tbsps oil and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When they start to splutter, add the urad dal , chana dal, dried red chillies, curry leaves , roasted peanuts, cashew nut pieces and saute till the dal changes color. Add the ginger, tumeric and green chillies and saute for a min. Add the chopped onion, salt and saute till translucent. Add the drained poha and mix well. Switch off and add the chopped cilantro and lemon/lime juice and serve. Enjoy!!!!
