Homemade brown rice poha recipe for better health and delightful taste


Poha is made from beaten rice and can be served best as a light breakfast, as a snack for tea, and to pack in tiffins for kids.

When shopping for ingredients, always prefer organically prepared food as it promotes health benefits such as –

  1. Ridding the food of pesticides or harmful chemicals.
  2. No scope of water contamination.
  3. Higher nutritional value and improved taste.

Poha, prepared from brown rice, can yield even better health benefits because brown rice is a rich source of dietary fibre, magnesium, and iron, which can help eliminate many initial disease symptoms.

Health Benefits of Brown Rice Poha


Check out the health benefits of including brown rice poha permanently in your diet plan –

1. Controls Blood Sugar Levels 

Poha is rich in fibre, which facilitates a steady release of sugar into the bloodstream, which prevents any sudden surge in blood sugar levels.

2. A Healthy Probiotic 

Poha is good probiotic food because it is made by parboiling paddy and then drying it out in the sun for a couple of hours. The finished product undergoes fermentation and thus retains the microbial flora from the partly digested carbs and proteins, which is healthful for the gut.

3. Healthy Carbohydrates

Poha comprises 76.9 per cent carbohydrates and 23 per cent fats. Hence, it is a healthy breakfast as these healthy carbs deliver energy to sustain life processes (Source).

4. Easily Digestible 

Poha is light on the stomach and gets digested easily. Therefore, you can have it as a first-morning meal or as a light evening snack. Poha does not cause bloating and also keeps you full for longer.
