sweet poha recipe

this sweet poha is a goan recipe. there are some variations in preparing this one. i follow my mom’s recipe with just one change. i add a bit more milk. in this recipe the jaggery is just chopped and added. bananas are also added. they taste very good with the combo of poha, jaggery and milk. sometimes i make this even with coconut milk. you can also check this similar banana rasayana recipe from the karnataka cuisine.

with red poha, it tastes very good. i did not have red poha, so used white poha. you can use either thick or thin poha. this is so good, that even adults enjoy it along with kids. this recipe serves just one serving. you can easily increase the proportions of the ingredients.
