Instant Dadpe Pohe (Flattened Rice)

My mom makes this instant and delicious dadpe pohe. The word "Dadpe"  means keeping it covered. There are so many different preparations of pohe from Maharashtra and Dadpe Pohe is one of them. I call it instant Dadpe Pohe because unlike traditional recipe, these pohe can be prepared withing minutes. This recipe is quick and delicious. Perfect for snack or dinner. These Dadpe Pohe are great for weeknight meals when you want something quick and filling.

2 1/2 Cup Thin Poha toasted in preheated oven of 370 F for about  10-12 minutes or until lightly toasted and crisp
2 Tbsp Raw Peanuts
1 Small onion chopped finely
1 tomato finely chopped
2-3 green chili's finely chopped
Salt as per taste
1 tsp Sugar or as per taste
1 tbsp Lime juice
Chopped cilantro for garnishing

For tempering
1-2  Tbsp Canola oil
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
Pinch of Asafoetida
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except for tempering. Juices from tomatoes and onions will make pohe moist and super tasty. Heat oil in a small pan, fry peanuts until crisp, remove on paper towel and keep aside. You can also roast peanuts in oven. In same oil add mustard seeds, once they splutter add Asafoedita and Turmeric powder. Pour this tempering all over the above mixture of pohe and add peanuts. Mix well and serve.
