  53. :) My sister used to make it so well Raji.. :p you won't believe. I haven't had it now from a long time. But I can share one thing with you, try this recipe.. you can start it by adding small chopped/diced potatoes(deep fried) and added later on to the poha.. and Add (Haldiram's Aloo Bhujhia) .. while serving.. on top of the Poha. Oh man!!.. it is yummmnn and crunchy! :)

    P.S. I hope you will like it.. ;) my way..! :D
