Batata Pava (Poha)

Very simple to make Batata pava, poha with potato and few veg, fruit and nuts...quick to make for breakfast or simply for tea party.  Goes perfect with tea, lassi, milkshakes or fizzy drinks.

You need:-

  • 2 cup Medium Pava
  • 1 medium finely chopped potatoes
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, cashew nuts and raisins
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped chillies and ginger
  • Salt to taste
  •  2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1tsp dry coconut powder
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp hing(asafoetida)
  • 3-4 Curry leaves
  • 3tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Tumeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala
  • Chopped coriander leaves


Wash the poha and leave it, make sure they are just damp not soggy.  Poha will be fluffy when you touch.  Heat the oil in kadai, add mustard seeds and hing, when they splutter, add peanuts and fry them on low heat for a few minutes, now add curry leaves, chillies, ginger and potatoes. mix well and let it cook until potatoes are cooked.  Add turmeric powder,Garam masala and salt.

Add fluffy poha and mix well on a low heat.add sugar, lemon juice, sesame seeds and coconut and mix it well.

Garnish with coriander and serve it.

I like to eat with chopped tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and chikoo pieces on top..
