Savoury snack/Granola – Red Thin Flatten Rice/Poha and Oats

Poha Chewda2


There is so much to love about this Savoury Granola. With crunchiness of flattened rice and the nutty taste from peanuts and roasted split peas with bits of coconut makes it so hearty and delightful.

This savoury granola will disappear very quickly. It is so aromatic when its oozing out its flavours while roasting.

During this cold weather you can enjoy with a bowl of this snack and your favourite hot drink. This also makes perfect for On the Go snack.
