Poha is number one Indori Street Food. Pohe and Jalebi is the most commonly consumed breakfast in Indore. Pohe is also very common snack anytime of the day, afternoon as well as late-night snack. Indori pohe can be as simple in its ingredients as pohe, water, oil, fennel, green chilies, salt, turmeric, sugar and cilantro. Sev to garnish. In more exotic versions, they load it up with peanuts, potato, onions, corn, carrots, peas, etc. That makes it a more balanced meal. I am demonstrating both ways of making it in a simple recipe. Not to confuse, if you want to make the exotic version, two steps of frying is not needed. Once can add all needed ingredients in a single round of frying. Making pohe is very fast. Dry pohe or flattened rice does not require refrigeration. They can be rehydrated in few minutes and subsequent cooking time is very short.
