How To Make :

  • Do not soak Poha in water. Just gently wash them thoroughly under running water
    and place them in a strainer to drip away excess water.
  • Adjust the flame while cooking to avoid blackening of the vegetables.
  • If you don’t have a strainer, just sprinkle a small amount of water over rice flakes and let them soak. Don’t use excess water. After soaking, poha should be moist but not wet.
  • Use medium thick rice flakes. Don’t use very thin rice flakes. You can also use brown rice poha.
  • A special tip for soaking Poha- just wash them till it gets wet in a strainer and leaves. Timings are important here. There should be enough moisture in the Poha to be fluffy, not mushy or dry. It’s best to soak Poha when you have chopped everything and ready to go.
  • Remember not to overcook the vegetables, they should remain crunchy.
  • If using potatoes I would always go for boiled potatoes. It makes Poha making super easy and quick. Although its optional and personal choice.
