Making poha in the traditional style is too cliche, why not try out something new and surprise your taste buds with the burst of flavours and cheese? 

Without any ado, let’s get started with the recipe! 

Preparation time- 15 minutes

Cooking time- 15 minutes 


  • Poha - 1 cup
  • Boiled potatoes - 7-8
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Grated cheese - 2 cubes 
  • Red chilli powder 
  • Dry mango powder 
  • Salt 
  • Vegetable oil

Process - 

  • Wash the poha under water thoroughly for about 2-3 times and transfer it into a pot by draining out all the water. 
  • Mash the boiled potatoes. Mix the poha and potatoes together to form a dough. 
  • Add red chilli powder, green chillies, dry mango powder, and salt. 

  • Mix them well and add grated cheese. 
  • Mix the cheese well and your dough is finally ready. 

  • Take a pan and add vegetable oil. 
  • Keep the flame low. While the oil heats up, make flat tikkis with the dough. 

  • Once the oil is heated well, add the tikkis to the pan and shallow fry them. 

  • Take them out on napkins/paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Serve hot with any sauce or chutney of your choice.

That’s it!
