Dadpe pohe is a typical Maharashtra breakfast dish,made with thin poha and freshly grated coconut.There is no cooking involved in this recipe.all the ingredients are mixed together,tempered and covered and kept aside for 5 minutes,moisture from coconut helps to soften poha and get everything together…this process of covering is called “Dadapne” thus the name “Dadpe pohe”
