Poha is a favourite in our household. . Kids and hubby can have it any time of the day..

I am part of a lovely Facebook group, a member, Reem Khan, had suggested adding lemon juice after adding onions for sautéing, as a result the onions get lovely pinkish color. I so loved the tip that I started using it there after. I thought I should share it on my blog as well…

Here is my way of making poha..
