In a bowl, measure out:
4 1/2 cups roasted rice flakes (thin poha)
Add just enough water to dampen, and set aside.
In a saucepan, heat:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
pinch hing
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin/mustard/sesame seed mixture
When the seeds pop, add and sauté until the onion is soft:
3/4 cup onion, chopped
3 Tablespoons fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), chopped
1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh hot pepper, chopped
6-8 Indian bay leaves
3 Tablespoons roasted peanuts, in halves
3 Tablespoons roasted Indian chickpeas, whole
Now add:
1 Tablespoon cumin/coriander powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon hot red pepper powder, or to taste
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
3/4 teaspoon sugar
3 Tablespoons lemon or lime juice (opt.)
Finally, add:
the dampened rice flakes
The mixture should be like thick, cooked cream of wheat cereal. If it is too dry, add 1 or 2 Tablespoons water. Turn the heat to low, cover tightly, cook for 5-6 minutes and serve immediately.
