Ingredients to make Kakdi Poha/ Cucumber Poha

  • 2 cups brown poha
  • 2 cups cucumber peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup fresh peas
  • 1 red chilli
  • 6 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 4 green chillies slit in half
  • 8-10 cashew nuts cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garam masala - optional
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves- finely chopped
  • 6-7 curry leaves
  • asafoetida a pinch

How to make Kakdi Poha/ Cucumber Poha

  1. In a big wide bowl, rinse the poha 2 to 3 times.
  2. Add enough water to cover the poha. Soak for 15 minutes. Once it is soaked well, it will become fluffy. Drain the excess water and keep aside.
  3. Heat oil in a cooking pan. Add red chilli and mustard. Let mustard splutter. Add cashew, curry leaves, green chilli, asafoetida and sauté for a while.
  4. Add cucumber, green peas. Mix well, cover the pan and allow it to cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Add salt, soaked poha, turmeric powder and mix gently. Allow it to cook for another 10 minutes. Brown poha will take little more time to cook.
  6. Once poha is cooked, add garam masala, sugar, lime juice and mix well.
  7. Serve hot , garnished with coriander leaves and lemon wedges
My Tip: I prefer medium thick variety of brown poha . Be generous with oil, otherwise poha will be blend and tasteless. Soaking time for poha is very important. Make sure you add enough water. Soaking time varies depending on the variety of poha being used
