Poha or pohe is a quick snack made of beaten rice or flattened rice. It is not only popular in Maharashtrian and Gujarati cuisines but also in many other regions of south India. Poha is prepared in a similar way in most regions. The traditional recipe uses a lot of oil as the belief is oil makes this tastier, but on the contrary, we use the water in the veggies to make the same and also retain the flavours. This post will teach you howto make oil-free poha in minutes.Here we don’t recommend this for breakfast but as a small after school snack instead of store-bought processed foods. It can also be taken to school or work in the lunch box.
