Flattened Rice/Poha Dish | Easy Breakfast Recipe

flattened rice/poha dish

This is one of the easiest, simplest, healthiest dish one can make for a breakfast/snack. The ingredients needed for will be sure in all kitchen. I often make as evening snacks and rarely for breakfast and daughter like this dish more.

Try this.


  • Poha/flattened rice/Aval- 1 cup
  • Onion- 1\2 sliced
  • Green chili -1 minced
  • Oil- 2 tsp.
  • Salt to taste
  • Grated coconut- 1\3 cup
  • Cashew-few
  • Mustard- 1 tsp.


1.Take aval in a bowl and wash it,drain and keep aside.Do this just before you are going to Cook as poha doesn't sit in water for more than 5 mins.( else it will be mushy).

2.Heat oil in a wok/pan,pop out mustard,add cashew,then add onion & green chili and saute for a while.

3.Then add the drained poha/flattened rice to it, and sprinkle salt according to ur taste and mix.

4.Cook in very low heat for  2-3 mins.switch off flame.

5.Garnish with grated coconut and serve.

You doesn't need any chutney for this, if u prefer u may serve. I like to eat it with sugar and my daughter will eat it as like that. Its up to you.


1.You can do many variation with it,add peanuts instead of cashew ,squeeze lemon juice,turmeric powder while sauteing,By doing so u get lemon poha.

2.You can add some cooked veggies like carrot.beans,potato to it and make vegetable poha.

 3.For thick poha variety soak in for some more time.
