Indore Street Style Snack Poha

 Indore Street Style Snack Poha

One of the easiest delicious and vegan staple breakfast for the people of Madya Pradesh. It is cooked in almost every household  and  sold in every street corner.

Dominant flavours from green chillies, with an extra crunch from the roasted peanuts.  Loads of freshness from the lemon juice and the vibrant yellow flat rice with the subtle hint of turmeric.... sometimes sweet and sometimes spicy. This dish is simply amazingšŸ˜‡
