Ghee fried poha

GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA

GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA
How many of you crave for a simple munch on or a “karack morak” snack at times? I do at times. I control myself saying snacking is bad most of the times. But when I am out of control I prefer making some instant snacks at home and have few spoons. One such instant quick snack is this recipe. I honestly didn’t know how to name the dish. I just randomly came up with this. Please ping me if you have some suggestions. This is usually made in the vessel which had been used to melt butter in the process of making ghee. Amma does not wash the vessel with the residue. She makes fried poha and then washes it. So everytime when ghee is made at home from butter (Check home made butter recipe here) , you can find this fried poha in our snack table. Continue reading “GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA”

Iron is an important nutrient which helps the red blood cells to deliver oxygen to the body and help in building the nervous system and brain. Without enough iron human body tends to end up getting anaemic and this hinders the growth of the cells in the body. Today’s post is a collection of foods rich in iron along with detailed recipes.
