  • Curry leaves few
  • ½ tsp grated ginger
  • Cashew nuts few optional
  • Asafoetida 2 pinch

  • Wash and soak ½ cup f poha | aval in water for 5 minutes. I used medium thick aval. If using thick poha, soak it for 15 minutes to get softness.
  • Drain the water completely.
  • Add ¾ cup curd and 2 tblsp milk to the poha. Mix well.
  • Adjust the consistency by adding little more milk.
  • Always use room temperature milk.
  • In a pan add 3 tsp oil and add mustard seeds, urad dal, red chili, grated ginger, asafoetida, chopped green chilis, and curry leaves.
  • If adding cashew nuts add it as well.
  • You can add finely chopped coriander leaves too.
  • Once the dal turns golden brown, switch off the pan and add it t the poha mixture.
  • Mix well. Add salt to taste.
  • Serve chilled with any pickle of your choice.
  • We had with tomato pickle.


1. If it turns thick after some time, add little curd and milk to adjust the consistency.
2. While using a thicker variety of poha soak it for 15 minutes to get softer dahi poha.
