Poha Namkeen


  • 100 g Poha
  • 25 g Peanuts
  • 25 g Roasted Chana
  • 1 Tbsp Curry Leaves Dried
  • 2 pc Papad roasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon or as per taste Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chaat Masala


  • Preheat the air fryer for 2 minutes at 180 degrees.
  • Take Poha in a bowl or parchment paper or aluminium foil and keep it in the basket of the air fryer. Keep the paper or foil in such a way that the basket is not fully covered and there is space for the hot air to move freely. See the pic above for reference.
  • Air fry Poha for 4 to 5 minutes depending upon how crunchy you like.
  • Once done, take out the Poha in a bowl.
  • Now, add peanuts in the Air Fryer No need for any foil or paper now. This is because peanuts can easily stay on the basket.
  • Air fry for just 2 minutes. They get roasted very fast so take care.
  • In the bowl, mix everything that is roasted Poha, roasted peanuts, crushed papad and roasted chana. You can add cornflakes and coconut pieces if desired.
  • Sprinkle salt and chat masala.
  • Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds and whole red chillies.
  • Put this oil on Poha mixture.
  • Toss nicely using 2 spoons or with light hands.
  • Store in an airtight container.


  1. The time of roasting Poha may vary slightly depending upon the air fryer. So, keep a watch on it and adjust time accordingly.
  2. Adjust the quantity of all the ingredients as per your preference.
  3. You can make it in a kadhai (wok) as well if wishing to make it in bulk. The process remains exactly the same.
