Dadpe Pohe is a classic Maharashtrian Breakfast recipe that comes all the way from Kokan.
It is a simple dish that is super easy to cook. So this is the perfect recipe for beginners.
Dadpe pohe is a delicious carbohydrate-rich breakfast. It is made with patal/thin poha. Personally, I prefer jada poha. It is soft, has a bite, and has a variety of textures and flavors balance of sweet, tangy, spicy, etc.
Dadapne gets its name from the technique that is used to make it i.e. ” dadapne”. Dadapne means applying pressure so the flavors amalgamate properly.
It is my favorite kind of breakfast or snack recipe. Add a little more veggies with some protein on the side and it’s absolutely perfect.
