baked poha recipe | poha in oven | baked beaten rice with spices | with 22 amazing images.

Poha is a preferred and one of the most popular breakfast snacks in Maharashtra and other parts of India too, because it is tasty, filling and versatile too. Atleast, once in a week poha is made for breakfast in every other Indian household.

You can prepare a variety of dishes using poha ranging from upma to vada. Here is an innovative Baked Poha which is way different from the regular batata or kanda poha. The method of cooking varies and also the colour as we have not used turmeric in the baked poha recipe. Though, the recipe might look different the taste does wonders.

To make baked poha recipe, we have started by soaking semolina, followed by washing poha under running water. Transferred the poha in a bowl and have added soaked semolina, curds, coriander, green chilies, sugar, salt and lemon juice. You can also add the lemon juice at the end if you wish to and skip this step. Mix well and spread in a greased baking dish. Further, we have prepared a tempering by heating oil in a non-stick pan and have added mustard seeds and asafoetida. Once cooked, pour over the poha mixture and bake in a pre-heated oven on 200 C for 15-20 mins. Garnish baked poha with coriander and enjoy with a hot piping cup of masala chai!

Here, we have skipped the traditional method of cooking poha on stove and rather baked it in an oven.

Beaten rice flakes are fortified with curds, lemon juice and other ingredients, supplemented by soaked semolina, and baked in an oven till it cooks and the flavours fuse. You will enjoy the texture and flavour of this unique dish.

Make sure you have baked poha immediately.
