Tangy Poha recipe / Thayir Aval recipe / Beaten Rice – Krishna Jayanthi recipe


This recipe is completely different from all the other recipes, all the others were savory or sweet. But here I have mixed curd/yogurt and green chilies with poha/aval and so it has both sour and little spicy taste. This dish is good for summers. I have made this as an offering to Lord Krishna for Krishna Jeyanthi / Janmastami / Gokulastami. Let us move on to the recipe…
