Iron-rich poha is an all-time favourite breakfast recipe, especially in Maharashtra. In fact, poha can be had any time – packed in a box, a snack on the move, or a tea-time accompaniment. While you might be familiar with the common batata poha, Green Peas Poha is a healthier alternative, with fibre-rich green peas. Vitamin C, present in the lemon juice, aids the absorption of iron from the poha, ensuring that you get the most of the nutrients in it. With the best of both worlds – taste and health – Green Peas Poha is worth giving a try!

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.
