About Aloo Poha:

If you smell a fresh aroma on the streets of Pune during the mornings, then I am sure it must be Pohe. Pohe is a healthy breakfast and a popular street food in Maharashtra.

Pohe is called Poha in English. It is a simple and low-fat breakfast, prepared with flattened rice, onion and ground nuts. Though it’s a Maharashtrian dish, it’s very common in the neighbouring states Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.

I have given a twist to traditional Poha recipe by adding aloo, green peas and fried onions.



  1. Instead of green peas, you can also use ground nuts.
  2. Pomegranate can also be used for garnishing.
  3. The dish can also be made with carrots or fried eggplant.

  1. Chop the onions, potatoes and chillies into small pieces.
  2. Wash the flatten rice with water for at least 2 times, drain out the water, squeeze lemon on it and keep aside.
  3. Place the pan on medium flame, heat oil on it, fry the potatoes cut into small pieces and chopped onions till they turn golden and keep aside.
  4. Remove the oil and heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the pan and crackle the mustard and cumin seeds.
  5. Then add curry leaves, green peas and green chillies, saute them for a few seconds.
  6. Then add the fried potato and onion to it. Add salt and turmeric powder to it and mix it well.
  7. After 5 minutes add the poha and stir it well. Reduce the flame, cover the pan with the lid and let the poha, green piece and vegetables be cooked for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the lid, garnish the dish with chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot with a cup of tea or milk.
