Vegetable Poha


  • 1 cup red rice poha
  • 1 cup grated vegetables or diced steamed vegetables
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • green chilies to taste
  • ginger paste to taste (optional)
  • ¼ tsp turmeric (optional)
  • ½ cup water
  • salt to taste
  • roasted peanuts
  • grated coconut(optional)
  • fresh coriander chopped


Put the poha in a big strainer and wash it. Let it sit for about 5 minutes till the grains become thicker. Meanwhile, put a pan on a low flame and add the mustard seeds. Once they start popping, add the green chilies, ginger and vegetables. Add salt and turmeric if using. Sprinkle some water if it’s too dry. After about three or four minutes, add the soaked poha and toss it around till it is fully coated with the turmeric. Add in the peanuts and take it off the stove. Garnish with grated coconut and coriander.
