Pohay or Pohe is an Indian fast food prepared in Maharashtra and some Northern States.  Its origins are unknown. Northern variants of this dish tend to be sweet, while Maharashtrian pohay tends to be spicy. It is also often served with an extremely spicy curry, locally called 'tarri'. Pohay with tarri is a relished snack in the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra state. Pohay is made of flattened, processed rice, roasted with chilies, onions, mustard and cumin seeds and curry leaves (called Kadi-patta). It is a high carbohydrate, low fat, quick meal that can be made in minutes. Pohay is easily available in most tea shops (amrutul-lyas) and other restaurants.
