Hi Dear Bloggers&Friends,

I know its been very long like nearly 2.5yrs i have posted,took a longbreak.

Wonder how days ran very fast,might be running behind my smarty as well as naughty daughter i forget to note the days:))

I always have a special place in myheart about blogging as it was my friend, company before arrival of my daughter for me always.

I was finding time to post, but some or other things kept me away.

Now i'm back with Jiffy as well as nutritional receipe.


Its an instant tiffin which can be prepared just within 5mts-10mts if you keep things ready.

You get pressed and other type, same way white as well red one. Red is considered little nutritive as it has more iron content. I got this during my recent India visit.


Aval/Poha - 1cup
Onion - 1 medium
Green chillies- 2
Tumeric - 1/4tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2-1 tsp(remember we have also added green chillies)
Salt- As per taste.
Coconut - little(grated)


Mustard- few
Split Urad dhal: few
Channadhal- 1tsp
Groundnuts- 2tsp
Curryleaves - 1 string
Red chillies - 1(optional)


1. Soak Aval/Poha for just 3mts, wash it & drain, keep aside.

(Don't squeeze the water tightly with hands,as it might get mashed. For safeside better pour in strainer vessel and gently press on the top layer)

2.Take very little oil, season the items given under seasioning in the pan.

3.Fry the onion in same pan well then add tumeric, salt to the mixture.

4.Finally add drained Aval/Poha, mix well.

5.Give a final tough with our grated Coconut.

6.Enjoy your yummy and jiffy tiffin with family members hot

It taste good and perfect when served hot once prepared. If you have after long time it get little rough needs more chewing(anyway nice exercise for jaws:))right
