  • cup thick or thin poha, you can also add ½ cup thick poha
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped or grated organic jaggery or jaggery powder
  • 1 small to medium banana (chopped)
  • cup warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated coconut


  • in a strainer, rinse 1/3 cup poha in water for a couple of times. strain very well and keep them aside. the poha should soften while rinsing.
  • now peel and slice 1 banana in a small bowl.
  • add 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped or crumbled/grated jaggery on top.
  • you can also grate the jaggery and add. you can also use jaggery powder. i have used organic jaggery here, which has no impurities. if using regular jaggery, then i suggest to melt the jaggery in a bit of water. then strain the jaggery syrup and add. you can also use palm jaggery.
  • then add 1 tablespoon grated coconut.
  • add the poha.
  • next add 1/3 cup warm milk. warm the milk in a small pan before you add. you can add less or more milk.
