  32. Poha with broccoli..thats a lovely recipe, Priya, Thanks !! By the way,I have a problem - when I pack poha for the little one's lunchbox, he doesn't eat complaining that poha was hard, but eats it all right at home, when served immediately. Is there something special I need to do for the poha to be consumed later ?
