Rice Flakes Medium (Pawa)
Pawa, also known as flattened or beaten rice flakes, is a popular ingredient in Indian cuisine, especially in dishes from the states of Maharashtra, West Bengal, and Assam. Pawa is made by flattening parboiled rice into flakes that are then dried in the sun.
Rice flakes are a versatile ingredient and can be used in many different dishes, from breakfast to snacks to desserts. It is commonly used to make poha, a popular breakfast dish made by sautéing pawa with onions, potatoes, and other vegetables, and seasoned with turmeric, mustard seeds, and curry leaves. Pawa can also be used to make chivda, a crispy snack mix made with roasted pawa, nuts, and spices.
Pawa is a good source of carbohydrates, fibre, and protein. Pawa is often used in dishes that are easy to digest and provide quick energy, such as breakfast dishes and snacks.
