Poha Chilla Recipe

Generally we think of making chilla with gram flour (besan) but have you ever tried to give it twist and make it with rice and poha, these cheela are very crispy. Along with a rich taste and a variety, poha is incredibly healthy.

If you add a lot of veggies, it becomes rich in vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants as well.
