Protein Poha

We all make kanda poha or Batata Poha. But in my house my husband don't like potatoes much and I love it. I always add onion if I am making regular potato poha but still I was missing something and then I started making this one and it become family favorite, even I asked my mom to make this one and they love it too.

For this protein poha I am using black beans which I soaked  and boiled and froze it so when ever I need it I just have to take it out of freezer and I am good to go. I froze chick peas and Rajma too so just make gravy and use it or for salad also I don't have to look for cans.

2 cups washed thick poha
1/4 cup boiled black peas (if using can half can washed and dry)
1 finely chopped onion

1/4 cup corn ( i used frozen)
2 green chilies
salt to taste
1 tsp haldi powder
1 tsp garam masala
3 tbsp oil
lime juice
for garnish : bikneri Bhujia,

Heat a non stick pan, add oil in it.
When oil is hot , add chopped onion in it with green chilies.
cook till its changes it color little bit.
Add black beans, corn, haldi powder, garam masala, salt and mix it and cook it for 2 minutes.
Add poha in it. cook for 4 minutes and turn off the gas.
After 30 seconds add lime juice and served it hot with spicy sev or regular sev on top of it.

You can add potatoes , corn also.
