Poha is one of the most loved breakfast foods throughout India. Crunchy peanuts, some sautéed onions, and potatoes with curry leaves and spices are mouth-watering. Every grandma has her own recipe which the grandkids have proclaimed as ‘the best poha ever’. Some stay classic with potatoes and onions while some add tomatoes and load it up with veggies. Which is your favorite version of the good old poha? 

Lately, as there has been significant growth in packaged foods with instant meals, big brands have been launching desi breakfast foods. Maggi went the desi way too and introduced poha which can be made in minutes by just adding warm water. We tried Maggi’s Masala Onion Poha and here is our #FirstImpression.

4. Instructions to Make

We added 70 ml water to 65 grams of Maggi poha. According to the pack, 70 ml is sufficient, but we felt it was too little and added 20 ml more. Once you add lukewarm water just mix it properly so that the masala and hot water are evenly distributed in the entire bowl. We still felt that 90 ml was not enough and made Maggi Masala Onion Poha again. This time we added a little more than 100 ml and this time the rice flakes were plump and soft.

5. Taste & Flavor

Maggi Masala Onion Poha has a lemony flavor. It has hints of jeera and hing. Thankfully, it is spiced mildly and is not over-salted like some of the packaged products you usually find in the market. The peanuts, curry leaves and onions add a wonderful crunch to it.

Final Words

The poha is quite tasty and reminds you a bit of the same old Maggi flavor. On a side note, if they added some more peanuts to the poha, it would have been even better.

Overall, Maggi’s Masala Onion Poha is a tasty treat if you are pressed for time and need some poha loving on a busy morning.

Tip – Add some bhujia and lemon juice on top of your poha for that yummy crunchy experience.
