Tomato Peas Poha is a lighter version of breakfast to that of the tomato rice. Delicious and filling breakfast using poha/ flattened rice. It's a super quick fix hot breakfast to quieten the hunger pangs.

1½ Cups Poha/Flattened Rice

2 Large Tomatoes -chopperized
1/3 Cup Green Peas - I used frozen

2 Teaspoons Level Sugar
2 Tablespoons Desi Ghee
For The Tadka
2 -3 Tablespoons Oil
½ Teaspoon Mustard seeds
1 Teaspoon Urad Dal
1 Teaspoon Chana dal
A Sprig Curry leaves - optional

Place the poha in a colander and wash it 2-3 times well in water to remove dust and hand pick any impurities in it. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Heat a broad pan or kadai with oil, add the mustard seeds when they start to splutter add in the urad and chana dal and roast until golden in medium flame. Then add in the finely chopped onion and curry leaves. Fry for a minute or till translucent. 
Now add in chopperized tomato and all the dry spices like chilly , turmeric and garam masala powder, salt and sugar too, give this a good mix cover and cook till oil surfaces 
and the mixture turns glossy. Add the peas and cover and cook for 2 minutes. 
Now add in the soaked and drained poha and mix well. Cook covered for 4 - 5 minutes on medium low flame. 
Switch off flame and fluff it with a fork. Add ghee and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Serve & enjoy this hot breakfast with your tea or coffee.

Happy Home-maker and culinary enthusiast.


  1. I love how fast the poha cooks and all the spices you used, Sneha. I need to buy a bag of poha next time I'm at the Indian supermarket for extra long-grained rice.

  2. I have never heard of flattened rice. Time for research.

  3. Sneha, I make poha quite often for breakfast or brunch. Have not tried with tomato. A lovely idea. Will try the recipe.
