Beaten Rice-Yogurt-Mango Parfait

The humble poha (beaten rice) or choora is a staple in most rice producing regions of India. Mostly eaten as a savoury in most regions, an interesting sweet version with yogurt is consumed in #Bihar (eastern India). Long before the days of oats and granola bowls,  choora-dahi (beaten rice-yogurt) or aam-choora (mango-beaten rice) used to be our morning fuel-pure, healthy and satiating. And even today when I crave for a quick,soulful breakfast, I fix myself a bowl of this yumminess and double up on the mango layer during summers. Featured here is a parfait version of the humble wonder from my homeland. Try it for yourself 🙂

Beaten Rice-Yogurt-Mango Parfait



  1. Blend the mangoes to make a smooth puree
  2. Rinse the poha in a wide rimmed strainer under running water for a minute. If the desired texture is extremely soft then rinse for a minute longer although crisp poha tastes much better; the yogurt/mango puree tend to soften it to an extent as well.
  3. Layer yogurt,poha and mango puree in that order, top it with some thandai powder and enjoy!
