Born and brought up in Madhya Pradesh (MP) Poha has been my staple food since childhood. Poha use to be our breakfast daily.
Even you find it on the streets, small tea stalls & all around the town in the morning. In MP you start your day with Poha, Samosa, Jalebi, Daal Kachori & Chai. I love to cook poha & now since I have moved out of my Town, cooking Poha is the remembrance of my hometown & my childhood...
Friends and family say I cook the best Poha in this now its your turn to share your experience with me on my Poha recipe in typical MP style...Its healthy & superb for Breakfast.
