During Diwali various types of dishes using poha or beaten rice are prepared in Goa. This “dhaiyanche fov” is one such recipe which is prepared in most of the Goan houses on the eve of Diwali. “Dhaiyanche” means “mixed with curd” and “fov” means beaten rice. Along with this dish, we also prepare milk poha or doodanche fov, bataat fov/ avalakki bhaat, poha in coconut milk, poha in jaggery, etc.
