Poha recepie (flattened rice)


This is a popular Indian breakfast dish known as poha(savory flattened rice). It is my favorite dish to make when hunger strikes as it literally takes 5 minutes to make it.

-poha(flattened rice)- 1 cup
-mustard seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
-curry leaves- 5 to 6

– Seave the poha(flattened rice) to remove any powder or small granules.
– Thoroughly wash the poha without breaking the rice. Remove excess water.
– Place the poha in a flat dish and pour 1/2 cup water over it. Let the rice soak the water for 10 minutes.
