There is a tale behind the reason which is a part of Bhagavata Puranam.

Lord Krishna’s childhood friend a brahmin named Sudama also known as kuchela called in south India. Sudama was from a poor family they did their schooling together and after moved on in their lives. Krishna became the king of Dwaraka whereas Sudama lives in his hometown a simple life. Sudama goes through bad times in his life. His wife insisted him to get help from lord Krishna his friend but he refused. But in no way he went to meet him. There is a custom in India that when we go to meet somebody we buy anything for them and do not go to meet in empty handed. But Sudama doesn’t have anything at his home except the Poha or beaten rice or aval so he packed it in a white cloth and went to meet Krishna. Krishna got surprised to meet his friend and treated him royally Sudama got inspired and forgot to ask him for what he came to meet him. Krishna asked Sudama what did he bring for him. He gave this Poha and Krishna happily got it from him and started having it.

Sudama returned back home and noticed that his house has transformed to rich ones house and wife and children wearing new clothes and he became very happy and extreme emotional feelings. He got everything for not being the friend of Krishna but because of his devotion to lord Krishna. And so Krishna likes Poha very much and it means you can offer Poha too to him in a true devotion and prayers.
