Every morning we might wake up with a thought, “What shall we have for Breakfast? Poha, Idli, Upma and Dosa are all out dated stuffs, there is absolutely no fun in eating it.
I heard from one of my friend that she used to add green peas to Poha. This inspired me to use kabuli chana in Poha. This is unusual combination but these Poha Chanawala dish is extremely tasty and innovative.
I bet it will become part of your daily breakfast menu. This Poha dish can also go well if packed in Children’s Lunchboxes.
