Method:- – Seave the poha(flattened rice) to remove any powder or small granules. – Thoroughly wash the poha without breaking the rice. Remove excess water. – Place the poha in a flat dish and pour 1/2 cup water over it. Let the rice soak the water for 10 minutes. – Meanwhile add the cooking oil in a pan.
