Dr K Jayalakshmi Jithendra, a Bharatanatyam dancer, vouches by this nutrient-packed snack.

Power soya poha


1 cup poha/chidva  (pressed rice)
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 cup finely chopped onions-
8-10 curry leaves
2-3 whole red chillies
1/2 cup boiled and squeezed soya
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped tomatos
1 tsp green chillies finely chopped or to taste


1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and lemon wedges


Add raw poha to a large bowl and rinse well. Do not let it soak for too long. Now, leave it in a large bowl to drain out completely. Heat the oil and throw in the mustard seeds, curry leaves, onions, and green chillies. When the onions obtain a light brown colour, add soya and toss around till they look slightly glossy. Add tomato, salt and turmeric and sauté over low flame until cooked well-enough.

Increase the heat, add poha and mix well. Saute till mixed and heated thoroughly. Shut off the heat, and mix half of the coriander. Transfer onto a serving dish, garnish with  coriander and lemon wedges and serve hot.
