baked poha cutlets
Poha (rice flakes) is a versatile ingredient, agree? It can be put to innumerable uses, of course in your kitchen. Get your creative mind at work and start experimenting with these thinnest rice flakes and you can create marvels. Trust me!










It may look bland at first sight, but if you do pick this ingredient, you will find you can make

  • diet snacks
  • savory snacks
  • desserts, sweets
  • cookies and cakes
Also known as beaten flakes, flattened flakes, or dehusked rice, poha has a unique characteristic to swell when it comes in touch with water. So when it comes to making poha snacks, you ought to remember this.

It is an easily digestible form of raw rice, which is widely popular across India and savored in different ways everywhere.
Poha Recipes
  • The simple poha recipe would be to soak these flakes in water for a couple of minutes and then add them to warm flavored milk - do not be surprised if these taste like kheer or rice pudding.
  • Then another form to enjoy poha is by dry roasting it along with almonds and puffed rice, and tempering them with carom seeds, curry leaves and turmeric. You will love this diet snack.
  • In some parts of the country, poha is eaten raw and mixed with jaggery.
  • You may dry roast poha and then give it a few churns with jaggery and dry fruits. Add 1 tbsp of ghee or clarified butter and roll the powder into ladoo. This poha recipe was shared by Neelam Avasthi in my food group, and she got great reviews on the same.
  • Mix poha with curd and ripe banana and little sugar, and you will get a quick anytime snack with poha. This is known as chuda kadali chakata and savored in Odisha - my sasural (in-law's place).
  • Kanda poha is another poha recipe popular in Maharashtra.
