[Jacqueline's note: Poha is a west Indian snack/breakfast food made from flattened rice.]
Remember to order [from the store] the thick poha because the
thin ones just disintegrate into mush when soaked. You need the flat
poha - they come in 2 varieties - one thin and one thick. You can use
both of them - for the thin one you soak it for much less time.
An easy poha recipe that involves no cooking -
soak poha in cold water for 10 mins (I use hot water and reduce the
soaking time to 2 mins). Cut up fruit (we love bananas) and mix with
yoghurt and sugar/honey to taste and mix with the soaked poha. Sprinkle
with flax seed powder for a crunchy texture if the kids like it.
This used to be my favorite snack when I was growing up in India.
