Poha , made of flattened rice is a simple and nutritious breakfast/brunch dish of western India. It can be bought from any Indian grocery store.
Its very simple to prepare and tastes good and fills your tummy, what else do you want ?
Its best when served with corriander-mint chutney or coconut chutney.
I love green coconut chutney, so made that to have with my poha, and It was simply awesome.
Try it out and you'll see what I mean! :-)
