Overnight Poha flakes are our desi version of overnight oats with my personal touch to solve my daughter, who doesn’t like oats but stays in the hostel and prefers a quick breakfast option in busy mornings.
This recipe is forgiving and adaptable to however one wants to have it.
One can use available millet flakes, medium-thick rice flakes white or red or black and can be soaked in plain or vegan /plant-based milk, yoghurt, or mixture. Hence, according to one’s diet restriction, it can be made and consumed.
Let us see how I made them. It is ready to make a flaky overnight mixture as an instant mixture to replace plain oats.
Medium-thick poha – 1 cup
Ragi poha / flakes – 1 cup
Jowar poha – 1 cup ( optional)
Puffed Amaranth – 1 cup ( optional)
-Dry grind Red poha ( what I have used) in a small mixer jar using “PULSE” mode.
-Pulsing the rice poha helps reduce the size, and it helps to match the size of other millet poha and puffed Amaranth.
-Now, take one dry bowl, mix everything properly and store it in an air-tight bottle.
As we all know how to make overnight oats, we use this poha flakes mix and proceed.
Take 2 to 4 tbl spoon of the above poha flakes in a glass bottle or bowl. Add chia seed, dry fruits etc
Pour cow’s milk or vegan plant-based milk. Close the lid and keep it overnight inside the fridge.
-Next morning, add chopped fruits and dates with/ without a prefered natural sweetener like honey, jaggery syrup or sugar.
