Bread Poha

Bread Poha

With very little time on hand each morning is like running a marathon- packing everyone’s lunch box, sending them to school/office and feeding them a healthy and a well balanced nutritious meal. This is my morning routine and I bet you all are in the same boat. To sail through the morning hour smoothly, I have my raw materials ready and my meal plans chalked out for the next day; starting with breakfast. Breakfast is my most favorite meal of the day, as it fuels me up and keeps my metabolism going for the rest of the day. Today’s recipe comes from one of my to-go easy breakfast collection.

Bread poha – a simple and healthy filling breakfast recipe which can be prepared under 30 minutes.  A perfect breakfast where cubed bread slices are tossed with onion-potato mixture and spices – what a healthy way to start your day. This recipe can be tailored according to one’s taste. 

Instead of adding the bread in its original form, bread can be slightly toasted, cubed and added to the mixture. Extra veggies can be added to make it more flavorful, my recipe is mildly spiced but is a perfect mix of flavors. I believe the morning breakfast should have subtle and pleasing flavors.

Start your day with a healthy bread poha recipe along with Strawberry smoothie or Strawberry mango smoothie  on the side 🙂
