An interesting variant of the ever-popular Maharashtrian snack, here the poha is prepared with nutritious soya granules. While the Soya Poha tastes very similar to regular poha with the crunch of onions and the tang of lemon, it gives you the added benefits of isoflavones, and also helps keep diabetes under check. The nutritional profile of soya is so good that this tasty snack will also help you avoid other diabetes-related complications and maintain general well-being.

My family loved it...They could not make out any difference between the regular rice flake poha and soya poha.... Happy to cook a high protein recipe...
