Sweet Poha Recipe|Cooking Without fire|ಸಿಹಿ ಅವಲಕ್ಕಿ|Meetha Poha|Sweet Aval
sweet poha/bajil Bella tarai one of the very traditional breakfast recipes in Mangalore. Bajil Bella Tarai which stands for beaten rice, jaggery, and coconut. The freshly grated coconut releases all its flavors when combined with the jaggery and cardamom. Although one can substitute the jaggery with sugar, it’s best to stick to jaggery.
In Mangalore Poha is transformed into two versions, the sweet and the savoury one (Bajil in Tulu) which is eaten as is or served with Sajjige (Upma/Savoury Semolina) and is famously called as ‘Sajjige Bajil’. This is by far one of the most common breakfast items and is probably the favorite of more than half the population of Mangalore. The Sweet Pou is more of a tea time snack and is often savored with hot coffee or tea.
Personally, I don’t like poha.I’d have a dismal look on my face when my mum made poha as a tea time snack while my sister loved every bit of it. I would eat it only when it was garnished with bananas. It goes without saying that I didn’t try my hand at it after I got married even though my husband loves any version of poha. Thanks to blogging, I have been reintroduced to the Sweet Poha and it is very simple and doesn’t require fire. When I finally made & ate this, I totally loved it and wondered why I deprived myself of such simple pleasures of life.
