Poha is a popular snack food and breakfast dish in India, made from flattened rice that has been parboiled, then dried and flattened. It's light, fluffy, and has a slightly nutty flavor. Poha is commonly prepared by rehydrating the flattened rice in water, then seasoning it with spices, vegetables, and sometimes peanuts and/or curry leaves. The result is a quick, easy-to-prepare dish that is high in carbohydrates and provides energy. Poha can be served on its own, as a snack, or as a side dish with a main course. It's a staple food in many Indian households and is often enjoyed for breakfast or as a mid-day snack.
