Tried this, it is very good. Very different from the usual poha recipes. want to try the banana poha next.
We lived in bangalore for a few years and your recipes help us recreate the wonderful time we had there.
Have tried a few other recipes from you and the only one that did not work for me was the banana dosa.
I admire and thank you for the tremendous amount of work you have put into this blog.
