For this week theme on BM I'm presenting "Festival Special-Krishna Janmashtami". Enjoy the dishes & don't miss the update. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 42.

Gopalkala is a Janmashtami special dish, made of poha, curd & some seasoning to it. Apart from being a festive dish it is a cooling dish for summer days. This is a simple dish, which takes very few minutes of time in making it & tastes delicious. This dish is similar to south indian "Dadojanam" or curd rice & the only difference is we make this with beaten rice or poha.

Prep Time-15mins | Cook Time-2mins | Serves-2People
1Cup poha
1Cup curd 
1/2Cup grated fresh coconut
2Green chili's chopped
1Tsp finely chopped ginger
1Tbs ghee
1Tsp jeera 
Salt to taste
cilantro/coriander leaves for garnish
- Add poha to a sieve & wash them with water. Allow poha to sit for 10mins. 
- Mean while heat pan with ghee & to that add jeera, green chili's & ginger. 
- Fry them for few seconds & switch off heat. 
- Add curd, coconut, salt & the fries seasoning to poha. 
- Mix them well & garnish with coriander. 
- Using a sifter will filter the leftover water from poha. 
- You can add chopped cucumber at the end before adding coriander.
