Red Poha with Grapes – Healthy Breakfast Recipe

Think of a healthy and quick Indian breakfast to kickstart your day and poha is probably going to be one of the option to come to your mind. The wholesome dish made of flattened rice is immensely popular across the country, particularly in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. I have already shared Indori poha recipe which is tempered with fennel seeds. Almost every household has its own way of preparing it – some use onions some peas and peanuts and others use a whole bunch of vegetables along with a mix of spices and fresh herbs like kadi leaves or fennel seeds.

Poha is my one the favorite breakfast. It’s easy to make and it tastes delicious. I always try to make a different variety of poha sometimes I add vegetables, temper with fennel seeds or kadi leaves, sometimes with fruits – pomegranate, and pineapple. This time I used grapes, both black and green grapes. I made this recipe with – Red poha. The idea of adding grapes turned out to be very good and the recipe idea given to me by my friend Isha Dabral.
