Last month when I bought this pack of this, I wanted to make upma first and post. I have already made several times using red poha but never thought to make post.

When I made red aval payasam post, I just loved the color, flavor and how hearty, filling it was. Since what I bought was getti aval (thick variety) I thought red poha upma will turn out perfect.

As I expected, it was too good and turned out perfect without turning mushy.

🌾 Poha variety

There is thin, medium thick and thick variety available in shops. I have tried thin and thick so far.

Thin aval, medium aval does not need excess water while soaking. Just wash and keep aside for 10 mins and you will get fluffy poha.

Thick aval needs water, just to immerse it and soak, you get perfect soft poha.

💭 Top tips

To get moist results, soak for long time and cook in low flame to ensure softness.

Likewise, to avoid getting mushy, these two factors matters – Soaking time and water amount we use to soak.

Use generous oil to avoid dry result. You can choose a good cold pressed coconut oil or sesame oil.
