POHA is a staple in my cupboard, allowing me to fix a quick breakfast or snack or a light lunch without much fuss. It is uncooked rice that has been flattened into flakes, like rolled oats. It cooks much faster than whole rice, and is easily digestible. The uncooked flattened rice is called ‘poha’ and the cooked savory dish is also called ‘Poha’. You will see many variations of this dish. Some add stir fried potatoes, and vegetables, I personally like to keep it simple mild spices and peanuts add a nice crunch to its otherwise soft texture. The addition of mango is optional but takes the dish to a whole new level.
It is very easily available in Indian and international market as thick or thin flakes.
