Poha is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast/ snack item. Its also a delicacy liked in Gujrat, Rajasthan and other states too. Essentially its flattened rice and is prepared using various vegetables and Tadka of Mirch is added for enhancing flavour. I had learnt the recipe of Poha from my mother-in-law. She was an amazing cook and perfect with ratios. Thats why this poha is made with the traditional touch of adding peanuts and curry leaves (Kadi Patta). Some like topping it with Bhujia or Namkeen while others like it with sweet. Its a nutrient-rich food. A good source of carbohydrates, it keeps you full, controls blood sugar levels, rich in iron and probiotic (bacteria that keeps digestive system under control,) too. People who are allergic to wheat(Gluten) have a wonderful choice of Poha. All in all, its favourite Indian breakfast item and if eaten in controlled portions(one bowl recommended), its an ideal choice for people on weight-loss programme. I have used the vegetables of season like red carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes. You can always experiment with vegetables of your choice. Its a simple recipe that tastes awesome. My kitchen is filled with the aroma of fresh Poha. Are you going to try it??
