Poha is a great variation to the standard rice you’re probably used to. The texture is much like rice, but just carries flavour differently.
This veganised poha recipe is sure to replace any plain rice recipe you may have on-hand with your next curry.
What is typically known as a breakfast food, poha is also great alongside your favourite Indian entrees.
Although not very authentic to India, I feel poha goes great with other foods and feel it’s worth the mention.
How to veganise poha?
As poha is essentially rice, spices, peanuts and oil, it’s actually naturally vegan. Some recipes may call for ghee, which is clarified butter (dairy), which you can easily sub for oil.
Is poha gluten free?
Poha is based from rice, so is indeed free of gluten. You can enjoy poha guilt-free knowing it’s not going to hurt your gut, for the coeliacs.
Is it healthy to eat poha?
As poha is rich in nutrients, carbs, fibre and even iron, the makeup of this grain makes for a healthier option to regular rice.
How long can poha last in the fridge once cooked?
If placed in the fridge, your vegan poha can last for as long as 4-5 days, in a sealed container.
In a freezer you can store it for up to a month, however, it’s much better fresh.
We hope you like this vegan poha recipe. It’s authentic from an un-named Indian auntie, quick and simple to make for a mid-week meal.
