Poha Yellow Moong Dal DosaPoha Yellow Moong Dal Dosa

Veg Poha is most commonly used in breakfast or snack recipes in India but it can also be used to make dishes for lunch/dinner or great for lunch box. The most common main dish made with poha is dosa! The batter for Poha dosa takes some time to make but it is worth it as it provides both softness and crispiness to the dosa. A variation of this dosa can be made with yellow moong dal with the addition of coconut, ginger, chillies and methi seeds as well. This Poha Yellow Moong Dal Dosa tastes different yet amazing.

For a lighter, and healthier, a lunch/dinner option, replace the potatoes in batata poha with fiber rich green peas to make Green Peas Poha. Don’t forget to add a squeeze of lemon to this which will help in the absorption of iron from the beaten rice! A very unique dish to try would be Baked Poha made by combining curds, poha, rava, lemon juice and coriander together and baking till cooked. Adding crushed beaten rice to Arbi Subzi also provides a mild taste and a slight crunch which is pleasant to the palate.
