Pressure cook potatoes the day before and put it in the fridge, the next day you can make aloo poha in just 10 minutes. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare Aval Upma. So keep poha/aval in stock at home. You can mix poha with beans carrot curry or potato capsicum curry and prepare breakfast in just 5 minutes.You can use leftover sabjis also. I used to prepare excess sabji/curry just for the sake of preparing some quick tiffin or breakfast with poha.
