What are poha rolls?

Poha rolls are crispy and tasty cylindrical rolls made using poha i.e. flattened rice and boiled potatoes. Crispy poha rolls have the bite of onions and kick of chaat masala, along with the freshness of green coriander and heat of green chillies. Poha rolls can be served for breakfast or along with evening tea. This is an easy Indian snack recipe which can be prepared as appetizers too. These should be served hot.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Poha Rolls Recipe

No points for guessing that poha rolls call for poha. You can use any variety of poha. To bind poha rolls I have added boiled potatoes which not only give good texture to poha rolls but also add taste. For flavouring I have used chaat masala. I use homemade chaat masala as it gives perfect kick to my recipes. The texture of mixture is critical for poha rolls recipe. It should be smooth yet firm. It is important to wash and soak poha properly, at the same time it is important that the water is properly drained out.

Other recipe using poha is recipe for poha palak cutlets. The bite of fried palak i.e. spinach makes all the difference. Find the recipe here. Another kind of rolls is bread rolls. These are liked by one and all. Find 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!.
