Indori Poha | How to make Poha with Jeeravan Masala

Indori Poha

Sharing is caring!

Indori Poha is a filling breakfast from Indore and is popular street food, normally served with hot Jalebi on the side. This poha is different from other versions as it has Jeeravan Masala sprinkled on it.

When it came to I in the A to Z Indian Breakfast Dishes, I wanted to make Idiyappam. Since I haven’t shared the basic version, I have planned for my April theme. Then I also had another version of making Idiyappam. However, I couldn’t make it finally due to a lack of time.

So I had to resort to Indori Poha. I do have a couple of other ways to make Poha. This Indori Poha is different as it has a special spice powder added. Ready to use Jeeravan Masala is available in stops, however if you can’t get it, you can easily make it at your home. I adapted this recipe from here and the Jeeravan Masala was also given.

This dish hardly takes time to get done and Hubby Dear said this tastes exactly as how he remembers eating. Indori Poha is my pick for I and the dish is so quick to make.

  2. Ah ! You just reminded me of my trip to Indore . The pohas there are available at every nook and corner and with jeeravan powder they taste awesome . Your bowl with various accompaniments looks super tempting , even better than the ones we ate there .
