Chutney Poha

Chutney Poha, this easy recipe was inspired by my brother in law. He loved extra zing in his usual breakfast and this one was worth sharing. The chutney adds so much flavor to the usual Poha and makes it extra special. This definitely does not replace my love for the classic Poha but I love to add twist to it. It’s spicy, tangy and turns out just perfect.
