Poha or seasoned flattened rice is a very popular breakfast in different parts of India. Depending on where you eat this breakfast dish you will notice a slight difference in taste. The Maharashtrian poha and the Indori style poha are super famous. A lesser known fact is that poha is also very popular in Karnataka.
We make poha at home almost every weekend, it is a favorite with my family.
