Lemon & Mint Red Poha

Light & fluffy lemon & mint potato red poha is a wholesome breakfast or snack option with so varying flavors than the usual poha. Poha is a staple breakfast in my home. And you can do so much with poha. Recently I picked up red poha(flattened rice made from red rice) just to try. And I can surely say I was impressed. It tasted almost the same but a bit heavier and keeps you full for long too. Although the texture is a bit coarse but it does require a bit getting used too.



You can make red poha similar to regular poha. Checkout my blog post on Kanda Poha | Onion Poha with tips and tricks on how to make fluffy poha.
