Chuduva, also known as Poha, is a traditional Indian snack made from flattened rice, spices, and dry fruits. It is a light yet filling snack often consumed for breakfast or in the evenings. Originating from the Indian subcontinent, it is popular across many regions including Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh. Common additions to chuduva include peanuts, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and sometimes, a hint of sugar for a sweet and salty twist.
