Indori Poha (Indore style Poha) Flatten rice dish

I never been to Indore, (Madhya Pradesh , India) but my huby went and whenever I make Poha for breakfast, he always mentioned that he had the best poha in Indore, when he went there for family friend marraige. Indore has lot of gujju Population there and that might be the reason this dish is very famous there but like every other region, they have their own style of serving. Its more spicy than Gujarat and they serve with Indori spicy sev , If you prefer you can add chopped onions too but I was having for breakfast so I didn't add it. If you don't find spicy sev , use aloo bhujia or ratlami sev too. It has special flavor from Fennel (saunf) in it. so have a happy morning. 

Ingredients :

2 cups Poha (beaten rice)
1 onion chopped
1/4 cup corn - optional
2 green chilies chopped or as per taste
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp. Fennel (saunf)
1 tsp. peanuts
2-3 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. turmeric powder
few curry leaves
salt to taste

To garnish :
fresh chopped coriander leaves
Indori spicy sev
Lime juice


Wash poha under running water , using a colander, until clean water comes out.
Set aside for 10 minutes to drain.
In a pan, heat oil. then add, mustard seeds, let it splutter.
After that add peanuts and fry until its golden brown.
Add chilies and fennel seeds. Cook for a minute and then add onions and cook till its light pink.
Then add curry leaves, turmeric powder, salt and corn. Mix it well.
Add poha and mix it again.
Cook for 5 minutes on medium -low flame till heated thru and nicely mix.
While serving add, fresh chopped coriander leaves, lime juice and Indori spicy sev and have it with your tea or as it is.
