The Vegetable Poha recipe is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast made from flattened rice, herbs and spices. It is a staple breakfast in our home which we all love. making poha is very simple and easy just follow the recipe stepwise.

Vegetable Poha is an easy, delicious and healthy breakfast recipe, popular in Maharashtra. Made with onions, potatoes and seasoning like chillies, crushed peanuts, lemon and curry leaves make up a tasty and easy one-pot meal, especially when you don’t feel like cooking. It is a very light and refreshing breakfast dish.

This sweet, spicy and tangy poha is something you can make for a weekend breakfast. The addition of roasted peanuts along with the hint of lemon along with the roasted vegetables makes this dish simply delectable. 

Few Tips

  • Firstly, use thick or medium-sized poha. Do not use thin poha for the recipe.
  • I soak poha only for 2 minutes in hot water, which gives them a perfect yellow colour. But you can just rinse the poha in water to remove the dust.
  • I used different types of vegetables and masala to make poha healthier and tasty. You can use vegetables of your choice.
  • Fried peanuts and ratlami sev give a nice crunch and taste to poha. You can also use chivda or aloo sev instead of it.
  • Poha has a slightly longer shelf life and can be used the next day. if you want to reheat the poha then steam it for 3 minutes or microwave.
  • Finally, vegetable poha tastes great when poha is soft and fluffy yet non-sticky.

Serve the Mixed Vegetable Poha along with Bhujia, Fruits and a hot cup of Adrak Chai for a wholesome breakfast.
