i guess it has been a while, i have not posted kids friendly snack recipes. i have been getting a lot of email requests to post something unique, tasty, yet a simple kid’s friendly snack recipe. i wanted something lite and crispy snack. so i thought of posting a poha or beaten rice-based snack recipe. beaten rice when combined with starchy potatoes, yields a crispy snack recipe. in addition, i have added plain flour which holds together and helps not to dissolve during deep frying. you may also add rice flour which should have the same effect but can make more crispy. however avoid corn flour as it makes crisp and porous, thus making more oily.

furthermore, before jumping into the recipe, some more tips, suggestions and variations to poha fingers recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use thin or medium-sized poha or beaten rice for this recipe. avoid using thick poha as it may not turn into fine powder after blending. secondly, try to shape it like fingers as the name suggests. however, it does not add any taste of flavour, and you can have any desired shape for it. lastly, you may also apply a rava or semolina coating just before the deep frying. you may use coarse rava for it and it helps to hold the shape and also turn the fingers crunchy and crisp.
