The lightest breakfast... Poha (the Maharashtrian Way)

I was wondering as to what should I post for today... So i thought y not Poha.. It is the much preferred dish for breakfast or for brunch.... Poha made from flattened rice is 200 cal and its nutritional value is quiet high...
lets see how is it made...

2 cups of flattened rice(poha)
2 medium sized onions ( chopped)
1 medium sized potato (chopped)
2 green chillies (slit from between)
2 tsp oil
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp mustard seeds( rai)
5-6 curry leaves
2 khadi lal mirch
1 tsp lime juice
pinch of sugar
Salt to taste
coriander leaves (chopped for garnishing)
Sev (for garnishing)

Put the poha in the sieve and wash it under running water until it is cleaned and drenched in water. keep it aside.
Take a pan, put the oil. after the oil heats up add in the curry leaves, khadi lal mirch, mustard seeds, and the slit green chillies. fry till the spluttering stops.
Now add in the onions. fry till it turns pink.
Add in the potatoes. and let it cook till it softens. add in the salt+ turmeric powder+ sugar after the potatoes are cooked. Add in the poha. mix it well. Add the lime juice + some of the coriander leaves.
sprinkle little water so that the poha does not dry up completely.
cook for a while. then switch off the stove

Garnish it with coriander leaves, sev, and a grind of lemon. Along with mint and coriander chutney.
