A nutritious breakfast taken early in the morning holds you in good stead throughout the day. Batata poha is a breakfast dish that's really easy to make and is commonly eaten in most houses. To make it healthier, i have substituted potatoes with sprouts in this recipe as sprouted pulses are easier to digest while providing precious nutrients like iron, calcium, b-complex vitamin and c.
