It is a regular dish in the whole of India and really liked in Maharashtra. It is healthy, tasty and easy to make. So let’s start making it—


  1. Beaten rice(poha)-300 gms.
  2. Fresh vegetables like Cauliflower, brinjal, potatoes(cut into small pieces)-1/2 bowl each.
  3. Onions(chopped)-2
  4. Green Chillies(finely chopped)-2
  5. Turmeric powder -1/2 tsp.
  6. Red Chilly Powder -1/2 tsp.
  7. Cumin powder – 1 tsp.
  8. Subzi (vegetable)masala – 1 tsp.
  9. Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
  10. Cashew and Raisins -A handful.
  11. Salt – According to taste.
  12. Vegetable oil – 2 tbsp.

For Garnishing:–

Freshly chopped cilantro.


Step 1 

Heat a heavy bottom cooking pan and add the given amount of vegetable oil to it. When it gets hot add the finely chopped onions and green chilies to it.

Step 2

Now when the onions are half fried, add salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, cumin powder, subzi or vegetable masala and fry everything again. Now add the chopped vegetables and after tossing them twice add some water(about 1 cup)to the pan and cook it covered till the vegetables get cooked.

Step 3

In the meantime take the beaten rice or poha and clean and drain the water.

Step 4 

Now going back to our vegetables, take the lid off the pan and check whether the veggies are done or not. When they are cooked add the garam masala,  beaten rice, cashew and raisins and fry it. When beaten rice gets softer fry the poha on high flame and garnish it with freshly chopped cilantro.
