4 different types of poha recipes + VIDEO. Easy, unique poha cutlet, baked aloo poha (jacket potato poha), Indori poha misal, Maharashtrian poha nutri-bowl.
Poha is known by many names. Beaten rice is called Poha in Maharashtra, Aval in Tamil, Avalakki in Kannada, Chiura in Bhojpuri, Chuda in Odia and so on. In this recipe video, you will learn how to make the original kanda poha recipe and 4 different types of poha recipes as well.
Kanda poha, batata poha, aloo poha, pea poha, vegetable poha, Indori poha, there are so many varities of poha being made in Indian household for breakfast. Why is poha a popular breakfast dish in India? I understand that Poha is very quick to make. Not only it is easy to make, it has numerous health benefits. It is gluten free and hence can safely be consumed by a lactose intolerant person, it is very light and easy to digest. It has iron and vitamins. Mix it with Peas for some added protein and you have a complete meal. It keeps the tummy full for a long time.
Poha is made every week in my household and hence I am always on a lookout for something different, something unique. Apart from the popular kanda poha, I have made four different types of poha recipes for you all, each with a unique twist. Here are some of my twists to the humble poha!
Vegetable poha cutlet recipe is easy, quick and a delicious snack full of energy and taste. These can be served as a tea time snack too and can also be packed for kids small tiffins. My little daughter gorged on these happily and wanted more. I finished half of them while shooting myself :-D. You can add your choice of grated vegetables and make variations to your liking. Great way to hide vegetables and feed nutrition to the kids. Here, you will see how to make veg poha cutlet recipe video. Addition of peanuts makes it so addictive and tempting.
I love Misal Pav but here I have replaced the Pav with Poha. Misal with Poha is a popular Indori Breakfast and streetfood. This is a matki usal recipe and then I added poha to it. Then why am I calling it Misal? The difference between Usal – Misal is that you have to first make Usal Curry and then top it with poha/chivda/farsaan etc. to make it Misal. You can make the same recipe and serve with Pav for Usal Pav recipe and top it with farsaan and serve with Pav for Misal Pav recipe. Other popular Usal varieties are moong usal and vatana usal.
Kanda Poha recipe or Onion Poha recipe is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast recipe. Kanda means onion and hence the name Kanda Poha or Kanda Pohe. Poha recipe or Aval recipe is easy and gets ready in minutes but to make it a complete meal, you have to add some more nutrition to the bowl. I don’t call it a Krishna Bowl or a Buddha Bowl, I call it a Nutri Breakfast Bowl.
Let’s learn how to make poha video recipe.
Aloo poha or batata poha are popular poha varities but I have given it a twist by baking washed and cleaned potatoes with stuffed poha and cheese. It was such a delicious brekfast and was far far better than the mundane poha we have every week. Check out the recipe for making baked aloo poha in this video and post.
Hope you enjoy the various different types of poha recipes. Do let me know if you would like to see more unique varities and are bored with the regular stuff in the kitchen. I will be more than happy to experiment. How about some Sweet Poha Porridge Bowl or a bowl of Poha Cheese Bomb?
