Breakfast Poha (Flattened Rice Flakes with Veggies and Nuts) Vegan, Glutenfree

My recipe post on OneGreenPlanet!. A simple breakfast recipe, very flexible to your taste. Add nuts, raisins, dry fruits, coconut flakes, peas and more, to make it your own Breakfast you would love to wake up to every Monday!

Poha-Flattened rice (also called beaten rice) is a dehusked rice which is flattened into flat light dry flakes. This easily digestible form of raw rice is very popular across Nepal, India and Bangladesh, and is normally used to prepare snacks or light and easy fast food in a variety of Indian cuisine styles. The thickness of the flakes varies depending on the use. This breakfast preparation uses thick Poha, which can be bought from any Indian Store. Thick rice flakes or brown rice flakes can also be found in some local health stores or online stores.

Cooked Poha is a quick breakfast or snack served in most parts of India. The preparation might be a different with additions or different nuts or vegetables, or shredded coconut depending on the region.

It is a carb heavy snack if made without any nuts. To make it a more balanced breakfast, I usually add a good helping of nuts and/or green peas. You can also use brown rice flakes to make this same preparation.

    You keep taking me back to my brief time in India with your posts! I loved poha when I tried it there – the hotels could make it so fluffy and light. I have even tried to make it myself a couple of times, but I will follow your recipe next time! Thanks!
