Water: 1 cup

Oil: 2 tablespoons

Mustard seeds: 1 teaspoon

Cumin seeds: 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves: 8-10

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Order the Hasty Tasty Poha Packet from Indore Online.
  2. Rinse the poha thoroughly in a colander under running water for a few seconds. Drain the water and set it aside for 10-15 minutes to allow it to soften. After 15 minutes, gently fluff the poha with a fork to separate the flakes.
  3. In a pan, heat oil over medium flame. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add cumin seeds, curry leaves, and chopped green chillies. Stir for a few seconds.
  4. Add chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.
  5. Add chopped potatoes and peanuts. Stir well and let it cook for 3-4 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

  7. Now, add the soaked and fluffed poha to the pan. Mix everything gently until the poha is coated with the spices and vegetables.
  8. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for 2-3 minutes over low flame. This will help the poha to cook evenly and absorb all the flavors.
  9. Finally, add lemon juice and Poha masala and mix well. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  10. Your perfect poha is ready to serve. You can enjoy it with a cup of hot tea or coffee.
