One such desired variety is this Dadpe Poha. Raw Poha mixed with fresh grated coconut, ginger and lime juice. Unlike the other Poha variations, this is not cooked and is made with thin poha. Just like the dum process, everything is mixed together and covered with a lid and some weight is kept on top , so that the flavours are well absorbed. "Dadapne" means to press or under weight in Marathi. Hence the name Dadpe Poha.

Well captured. Didn't know there was an uncooked version of spicy poha.
This is a new way of preparing this pohe. You found a different recipe for this state. Pohe looks delicious.

This is such a lovely way to use poha! My poha is never the right consistency when I make it. This would be my solution 🙂
