Bread Poha Recipe!

in foodie •  4 months ago 

Poha is a very popular Maharashtrian breakfast dish. I make Poha a lot. But it was one day that I had a strong craving for poha but didn’t have flattened rice available at home and it was too late to step out and get it from the market. That is when I invented my Recipe of Bread Poha. So instead of Poha, I tried breadcrumbs and it actually turned out to be a great recipe.

You can add a variety of vegetables as per your taste. Popularly used vegetables are Onion and Potato but I prefer to more like capsicum, carrot, beans and tomatoes. Crispy peanuts in bread poha make it even tastier. It’s a light, healthy and tummy breakfast option and takes only 15 minutes for preparation. You can use any bread as per your taste; white/brown/wheat/multigrain. It is also a way of consuming bread that is going unconsumed otherwise.

Let’s look at my bread poha recipe now.
