Dadpe Pohe

Another variety of Pohe from Maharashtra. It's very quick to make . A simple and spicy and non fried snack at any time. When we get bored of regular meal and have something tasty , filler and quick to make, We have it as lunch or dinner also. In Marathi "Dadpane' means giving pressure. While soaking Poha, we cover it with plate and keep some weight on it. So it is called as 'Dadpe Pohe' Just try it …….

Patal pohe (Thin poha) - 2 cups
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 small
Raw peanut - 2 tablespoon
Lemon juice - 1 table spoon (optional)
Green chillies - 2
Curry leaves - 4-5
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt and sugar for taste

For tempering
Oil - 2 tablespoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Asafetida - a pinch
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Grate onion and tomato. Take it in a bowl. Add grated fresh coconut. Now soak Poha in the water of onion, tomatoes and coconut. My aaji used to add little coconut water to make Poha soft. She used to cover it with a plate and used to put some weight on it and keep aside for 10-15 minutes. It is call as 'Dadapne', means to give pressure. Now add salt, sugar, lemon juice and mix well. Heat oil and fry peanuts to crispy brown. Then add mustard seeds, after they splutter add chopped green chilies, curry leaves, turmeric powder and asafetida. Let it get a little cool. Add tempering on Poha mixture. Mix well and serve with a garnishing of coriander leaves. If you like and you are not diet cautious, can add more grated coconut into it.
