“Poha“makes the perfect breakfast, simple dish consists of beaten rice and vegetables but here is the variation; I used scrambled egg instead of vegetables and decorated with poached egg before serving.
A complete and balanced combination of protein and carbohydrates is ideal for everyone.
In this recipe egg are used in two ways; 1st to scramble into poha and 2nd to decorate with poached egg. In this way the dish is not only appealing but gives satisfaction too.
