(Daddape Pohe, Maharashtrian Poha)

Jump to recipe ↓

Pohe is every Maharashtrian households healthy anytime snack. It is made with lots of variations. Pohe has many types too - Thin, Thick, Red etc. Preparations of pohe also has many variations. Some of which I grew up with are Kande Pohe, Batata Pohe, tail theekhat meeth pohe, dudh pohe, dahi pohe, daddape Pohe etc. In konkan region coconut is in abundance. So I guess dadpe pohe might have originated from those coastal areas.

Dadpe Pohe is a traditional Maharashtrian dish made with flattened rice, peanuts, coconut, onions and spices. Cooking time is very less for this dish.
