With iron-rich poha and protein-rich kabuli chana, power poha is an ideal breakfast that provides for your kids' active days and constant growth. Bright yellow poha, interspersed with everybody's favourite kabuli chana, with tomatoes for added brightness and lemon juice for a refreshing tang, power poha is quite appealing. You could chop the green chillies into large pieces, so that it will be easy to pick them out before your kids munch on this.
