Red Poha or flattened red rice carries far more nutrition than white poha. Red rice retains much of its nutrition from the intact bran layer, making Red Poha fuller bodied and packed with gut bacteria that aids digestion. Hand pounded, it has a more pronounced nutty flavour. It takes longer to soak and cook, but makes just as mean a plate of Kande Pohe, the Maharashtrian breakfast favourite. Add chopped onion, coriander and peanuts for crunch, and finish off with a squeeze of lime. In the land of its birth, it’s dressed with a light sprinkle of freshly ground coconut.

Provenance

Poha, popular in Maharashtra and parts of Madhya Pradesh, is said to have come into its own during the reign of the Holkar and Scindia dynasty, its fame spreading with the expansion of their rule. Some experts believe there is a reference to poha in the Mahabharata, when Sudama goes into his home to get the last grains of beaten rice, Krishna’s favourite, for his childhood friend. Every household has its own recipe, and you can make yours nutritious by adding vegetables of choice and dry spices.

      Genuinely very tasty, better than other options in the market.

      I try to intake more complex carbs so moved from white poha to red. Since then have been trying various options available in the market, both branded and unbranded, however all have left me somewhat dissatisfied. The Aazol red poha was the first to give me that truly earthy and village-y flavour that I was craving in this product. Ever since been a regular. Well done for that, team!

      My friend introduced me to this. I was so eager to try red rice poha when she told me how delicious it is. So I purchased mine from Aazol. Honestly, I’m really impressed with the quality, delivery speed & packaging.
