Flattened rice (also called beaten rice)

Flattened rice (also called beaten rice) is a dehusked rice which is flattened into flat light dry flakes. These flakes of rice swell when added to liquid, whether hot or cold, as they absorb water, milk or any other liquids. The thicknesses of these flakes may vary from thick variety to thin quality.
The poha , also called beaten rice , flattened rice or pressed rice , is rice that is crushed shelled until light flakes, flat and dry.
Pohe is a popular, easy and quick breakfast dish of Maharashtra & Gujarat.
It is made from poha which is flattened rice.

It is also known as ' Kanda Pohe '.
When making poha it is cooked lightly frying mustard seeds,
small pieces of boiled potato, turmeric, chili powder, finely chopped onions and then moistened poha is added to the spicy mix and sauted for a few minutes. Also lime juice n powdered sugar is added.
Adding fried peanuts & boiled corn to the poha enhances its taste.
