Last updated on Jan 21st
We lived in Madhya Pradesh (Khajuraho) for a year and we used to explore the nearby important places every weekend. When ever we went out for breakfast we ate this poha and hot jalebis along with chai or hot milk. In the beginning, I didn't accept this as my breakfast, but once I tried this it became a favorite breakfast to me.
