Tarri poha/chana poha


Tarri poha was something really new to me when I shifted to Nagpur,all this while I knew about kanda poha which is quite famous in Mumbai ,initially eating tarri poha did not make me feel excited, but once I tried tarri poha from a local vendor it did taste amazing. A healthy and wholesome snack for any local nagpurian.

What Vada pav is for mumbaikers,same tarri poha is for nagpurites.

What is Tarri?

Tarri is basically a gravy,here it is full of oil and red chilli powder. Served with poha.
