Poha is also known as flattened rice and is a wholesome meal as well it is not only a good source of carbohydrates but also packed with iron, rich in fiber, and a good source of antioxidants as well. However, it doesn’t contain any protein as such but we recommend adding a few peanuts while making Poha to balance the nutrient levels. Poha is also a gluten-free ingredient which makes it versatile in being used in kitchens and bakeries as well.
