Is Poha (thick rice flakes), merged with fresh ingredients, a healthy breakfast or brunch option?

Poha is a nutritious breakfast or brunch option; the thicknesses of these rice flakes vary between finely thin to nearly four times thicker than a normal rice grain – I have used the thicker variety for this recipe.

In this recipe, I merged poha with fresh ingredients for flavour and nutrients – poha is quite low in calories, is a good source of iron, and a probiotic food; when merged with:

  • Fresh Green Peas – this breakfast food type is included with proteins and vitamins A, K and C, and other essential nutrients; and elevates the poha with mild- sweet flavour
  • Coriander Leaves – this breakfast is enhanced with vitamins A, C, E and K, and other essential nutrients; this fresh herb boosts the poha with the pleasant spicy flavour
  • Ginger – this breakfast of poha is enriched with pleasant spicy flavour of ginger; and ginger contains gingerol, gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties

The Recipe of Pleasant-Spicy Poha for Breakfast or Brunch:

Quantity of Poha: approx. 250gm

Blend 2 handfuls of fresh green peas in adequate quantity of warm, any mild-flavour vegetable oil; add adequate quantity of water to the mixture for the fresh green peas to cook, smidgen the mix with salt – according to preference of flavour; add the blend with a handful of finely sliced pieces of coriander leaves, mashed pieces of a sizable portion of ginger root and finely sliced pieces of a green chilli (optional); when the water evaporates to cook the fresh green peas, add the mix with 1/4 tsp. of turmeric powder; in low-heat, blend the mixture with poha – before adding the poha, wet the poha with water and squeeze the excess water out.

Serving size: approx. 2
