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!
