  • Poha - 2 1/2 bowl
  • Palak - 1 bowl finely chopped
  • Moong dal - 1/2 bowl
  • Coriander - 1/2 or 1 bowl as per your requirement
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Chilli - either green chillies or red chilli powder as per your taste and requirement


  • Wash and soak dal for 5 minutes and then put it in boiling water for 15 minutes. The dal will soak up some water and become tender.
  • Run water through the poha for a minute and then let the water drain completely. Put it in a bowl with the palak and coriander.
  • Add the dal, salt and spices to the poha and mix till it forms a dough.
  • Make small balls or cylindrical shapes from the dough. You can also make them into small patties for cutlets.
  • If making cutlets, shallow fry the dough shapes. If making pakodas, deep fry in sufficient oil and drain on kitchen paper before serving.
