How to make Egg Poha with Pictures (Simple &Healthy)


In this post I’m going to show you how to make egg poha recipe.

Egg poha is a kinda healthy variety of traditional Kande Pohe.

If you are health conscious and protein hunter like me then this is a perfect poha for you.

There is not a big difference between traditional kanda poha and egg poha.

But there are couple of differences.

The first one is pretty obvious i.e. egg poha contains egg and kanda poha doesn’t.

The second difference is for the people who prefer to add sugar in their kanda poha.

Sugar doesn’t go well when there’s egg in poha.

Besides these differences most of the recipe is pretty much same.

I’ll advise you to add more of red chilli powder than turmeric powder in this recipe.

You can always reduce or increase quantity of ingredients according to your taste, if you know what you are doing.

If you are a beginner then stick with my quantity, you can make changes as you gain some experience.

So now let’s start the recipe.

Let’s start with soaking the poha.

Take poha in bowl and add water enough to sink the poha completely.

I think the tricky part of making poha is soaking the poha. Because it really depends on the quality of poha, how much time you should soak it.

I have a simple solution to get over this problem.

Just keep pressing the poha flakes with your thumb and first finger and rinse the water when the flacks started getting break down easily.

Once the poha is soaked  properly then wash it 2-3 times with running water, rinse it and keep it aside for at least 10 minutes.

Once the seeds are cracken then add diced onions and tomatoes. Also add a little salt as well. The salt helps to soften the tomatoes fast. Now let it cook for 1-2 minutes.

Check weather the tomatoes are softened or not by pressing it with spoon. If it easily breaks down then it’s time for next step.

NOTES

  • Don’t over soak or under soak the poha. Just keep checking the poha by pressing the poha flake with your thumb and first finger and if the the flacks easily breakdown then rinse the water immediately.
  • You can add one more egg if you like but then it will dominate the taste so if you like it then go for it.
  • Let the cumin seeds and mustard seeds nicely craken before adding onion and tomato.
