How to make Spicy and Tangy Mixed Vegetable Poha Recipe with Peanuts?


  • To begin making the Mixed Vegetable Poha Recipe, dry roast the peanuts (5-10 nos).  Keep the peanuts aside.
  • Heat oil/desi ghee (1 teaspoon) in a kadai, add the mustard and cumin seeds; allow it to crackle. Add the curry leaves, onions and saute until softened. Once the onions have softened, add the remaining vegetables, sprinkle some salt and water and allow it to steam cook.
  • Place the poha in a strainer and rinse it well under running water. Stir the poha gently by using your fingers while rinsing, otherwise they will become mushy at the time of cooking. Once washed set aside the poha.
  • Stir in the turmeric powder, peanuts, salt and black pepper.
  • Stir to combine and finally add rinsed poha.
  • Give the poha a gentle stir until all the ingredients come together. Turn the heat to low and cover the pan. Allow the mixed vegetable poha to cook in the steam along with the vegetables. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • After 3 to 4 minutes, you will notice the poha has puffed up slightly. At this stage turn off the heat. Stir in the juice from one lemon and the coriander leaves.
  • Check the salt and seasonings and adjust to suit your taste and serve.
  • Serve the Mixed Vegetable Poha with a hot cup of Adrak Chai for a wholesome breakfast.
