How to make poha masala at home | Jeeravan Masala Recipe

What is Poha masala powder?

A simple mix of spices that can zing up any poha recipe is poha masala. Poha masala is also known as jeeravan masala. It is indispensable for the very popular Indori poha recipe. Poha is a very common breakfast in most of the Indian households. And this masala is a must have. It can be added to any poha recipe; it is the garam masala of poha (wink).

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Poha Masala Recipe

I believe homemade masala is all about mixing the spices in correct proportion. Poha recipe calls for the spices regularly used in Indian cooking. The spices are dry roasted to make them more flavourful and convenient for grinding. I have not added regular salt in the masala as it might imbalance the salt in your poha preparation. Just little black salt has been added.

Try using this masala with my favorite poha recipe given here. Another homemade masala that you must have is the chai masala. As masala takes your poha to another level, chai masala does the same to your chai. Get the recipe here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
