dadpe pohe recipe easy breakfast recipe healthy

Dadpe Pohe (दडपे पोहे) is a Maharashtrian recipe that gives an amazing twist to the run-of-the-mill rice flakes. Pohe, rice flakes, or beaten rice is a breakfast staple in most Maharashtrian homes. There is more than one way to prepare delicious poha. Kanda Poha has a lot of onions in it. Similarly, the batata poha has potatoes and no onion in it. The kanda batata poha is the most common variety and has both onions and potatoes in it. The taste varies quite a lot if you alter the poha ingredients. Dadpe pohe recipe uses raw, unwashed poha, which is mixed with vegetables and tempered with very aromatic ingredients.

It is salty, slightly sweet, and wholesomely delicious. The raw poha in dadpe pohe gets softened because of the moisture that is released by the vegetables. You won’t be able to tell the poha is uncooked; it absorbs the flavors so well. I have used sandgi mirchi, which is a specialty from the Konkan region. It is the variety of chilies that have been stuffed with spices and dried in the sun. Extremely fragrant, these little beauties can give an incredible face-lift to a simple recipe.
