One of my favorite breakfast while growing up was Poha upma. Each family/region probably has a different version of this and I found that the Oriyan version is much more simpler and faster to make.
Since we have got used to our version of Poha Upma, it was definitely a lot different and plain. Next time I would add a few peanuts and more vegetables. The kids missed the potatoes in this for sure!
