Vegetable Poha

I have always had the typical poha that is cooked only with onions and peanuts. So, to make it more healthier and a complete nutritious breakfast, I have added veggies like carrots, capsicum tomatoes. You can add any vegetables of your choice. Below is my recipe for a perfect Indian snack prepared in no time.
