Chooda Matar is made with flattened rice (Poha), peas and some simple masalas. It is an instant dish as it requires no preparation at all. It is a winter delicacy in Banaras and a twist on the regular poha.
Whole spices, cooked peas, powdered spices, flattened rice are tossed together, and a little lemon juice is added to this mixture.
Chooda Matar makes for a scrumptious breakfast and snack.
