Dadpe Pohe/ Poha Mixture

As a kid I was not very fond of this dish. My mother never made this dish at home as it was always easy to make the regular kande pohe instead. Some years back I ate the rice flakes pudding at my british friend’s place who said she learnt it from her Indian neighbor. Her recipe was similar to this one. I am ofcourse deviating from the standard way and doing as per my preference. The point though is that this does not require any amount of cooking and is an healthy yummy option especially on a rainy day

1 cup Rice Flakes Patal poha
2 finely chopped Green chillies 
1 finely chopped Onions
1 finely chopped tomato
1 finely chopped Cucumber
½ cup Pomegrenate

1 tbsp Milk
1 tbsp grated Coconut
1/2 tbsp Water/ Coconut water (Optional)
1 tsp Lemon juice
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste


1.In a mixing bowl, add the poha, green chillies, onion, cucumber,water and mix well.
2.Let the pohas soak in it for 15 minutes.
3.Add the lemon juice, sugar and salt and mix well.
4.Add the milk to the pohe and mix again.
5. Garnish with pomegranate and coriander and serve.

Considering the janmasthami zeal, also reminds me of the dahi kala or gopal kala that is made. Simply substitute the Milk by beaten curd in the above dish.


my mouth is already watering...spicy chaat..looks new n yum:)

We make a sweet version - with poha, milk and sugar. Your spicy version will go well with a cup of chai.

Ok this was the one you were mentioning! We don't add Pomegrenate ..looks so colourful!
Right Valli - no one adds pomegrenate to dadpe pohe :-) Its my contribution, roasted peanuts are usually added for the crunch, but trust me pomegrenate are just fine, my son loves pomegrenate so it goes in any thing and everything at my place
