Poha offers a double benefit to women – it is iron-rich and it is easy and quick to make! so, you can toss up batatapoha any time, for breakfast or as a snack to shoo away hunger. Potatoes add volume to this recipe, while also boosting its energy levels, and the onions and traditional seasoning help enhance the flavour. Serve with lemon wedges or top with lemon juice before serving, because vitamin c is essential for the absorption of iron.

Thick Poha is healthy and has a nice mouth feel. Combined with a bit of potatoes and minimum oil the recipe has 18% fat level which is boarder line high. Tasty and the lime ads a nice tanginess to the poha. I have it often for breakfast.
