I feel that poha recipe is a very easy and quick recipe to prepare it anytime. Also, the taste looks tastier with the crispy peanuts.

Poha recipe is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast recipe, made from white flattened rice, vegetables, and spices.

Poha which 50% of people mostly eat every day because it is a very light and healthy breakfast. Also, It takes only a few minutes to make this is such an easy and yummy poha recipe for your breakfast. I prefer this in snack time with a cup of tea. This poha recipe is a combo of Maharashtrian and Indori poha.

There are many types of poha recipe and everyone has their own choices. For this recipe, I have used capsicum, tomatoes, beans, and some basic spices.

Are you a poha recipe lover?

If YES Then Which types of poha are you like? Indori Poha or Maharastriyan Poha. I like both! Not even only like, Actually I love both!

Poha can be eaten not only in breakfast it is also eaten for snacks and also for a quick dinner. It can also keep in your kid’s tiffin box and your husband’s lunch box. You can also pack it for a picnic trip.

I love full of vegetable poha because it is so healthy and yummy. If your kids didn’t like to eat veggies then chopped the veggies and roast it with peanuts they will eat that easily.
