As I have started reducing my post pregnancy weight little by little many of my colleagues and friends started asking the secret of my weight loss. And the answer is “poha upma at dinner”. Excellent recipe for weight loss with added nutrition of red aval, carrots, peanuts(good fat),olive oil and flax seeds. If you have a bowl full of this spicy poha your tummy will be full for long and also it has much of the health benefits. As me and my hubby started eating this in night even my MIL and SIL started eating this once they tasted it.
