Poha Recipe: loaded with veggies

Hi everyone…..

Today i am sharing the recipe of my version of poha. Its a famous snack and  i can have it for any of my meals.

If you do not want to cook a full course meal anyday , then this is  your meal in a bowl.I have used variety of veggies making it healthier and tastier.




  1. 100 gm Poha (beaten rice flakes)
  2. One  medium sized onion, sliced
  3. Half Capsicum, finely chopped.
  4. Half Carrot, finely chopped.
  5. One big floret of cauliflower, finely chopped.
  6. 2 leaves of Red cabbage, finely chopped.
  7. Handful of frozen peas.
  8. 12-15 curry leaves.
  9. 1/2 tsp salt
  10. 1/4 tsp turmeric powder.
  11. 1/2 tsp coriander powder.
  12. 1/4 tsp garam masala .
  13. 2tsp vegetable oil


  1.  Take a bowl, add  poha and soak it in water for a minute . Drain the water and keep it aside.
  2. Take a vessel and boil 1 cup of water, add frozen peas and boil for 2 minutes.
  3. Take a pan and add vegetable oil to it.
  4. Now add chopped carrot and cauliflower to it, cook it for 3-4 minutes and keep stirring.
  5. Now add onion and capsicum , stir it well
  6. Add curry leaves,let it cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Now add cabbage and peas, give it a stir.
  8. Add garam masala and poha, mix it well and cover it with the lid.
  9. Cook it for another minute and turn off the stove but do not remove the lid for another 5 minutes. Poha will taste better if cooked with the steam inside the vessel.
