Pohay or Pohe is an Indian dish prepared in Indore.[1] Indori pohay tends to be spicy. It is also often served with an extremely spicy curry, locally called 'usal'. Pohay with tarri is a relished dish in the Madhya Pradesh state. Pohay is made of processed flattened 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.[2]
