Healthy Red Rice Kanda Poha Recipe


For many Maharashtrians, kanda poha is not just a recipe; it is a culture. Kanda poha is nothing but onion poha prepared in a certain way. Although there could be traditional connections to this feel-good recipe, the white refined poha could throw the weight loss efforts in vain. There is nothing to worry since Truweight has a healthier alternative which doesn’t compromise on the taste one bit. We have simply replaced the white poha or flattened rice with red rice poha. Prepared from red rice, this poha is rich in fibre, antioxidants, phytonutrients, phytochemicals, Vitamin E, protein, iron, and other nutrients. It is believed to be beneficial for the liver, kidney and stomach. When you combine this goodness with the dynamic taste of onion poha, then it is worth the entire effort.
