RM 2: Batate Poha

The next dish in my 'Breakfast & Brunch' series is 'Batate Pohe'.

Poha is flattened or beaten rice which have a tendency to swell when added to a liquid, in my recipe its 'water'. The addition of potato gives a distince taste to the recipe and makes it an wholesome experience..:).

Batate Poha


1 medium Potato, boiled, peeled, mashed
2 cups of Poha (flattened rice)
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1/2 Tomato, finely chopped
1/8 tsp Turmeric
2 tsp Canola oil
2-3 whole Red Chillies
a pinch of Hing
Salt to taste
1 tsp Ural dal
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)
1 tsp of Lemon juice (optionl: for garnishing)


Step 1: Wash pohe in water, drain in a strainer. Set aside.

Step 2: In a wok, heat oil and add urad dal, mustard seeds, red chillies, cumin seeds and hing. Saute them for a minute or so.
