5-Min Breakfast Recipe: How To Make Doodh Poha:
To make doodh poha, first you need to curate the ingredients and keep them handy. Take poha (the thick ones) in a bowl and clean it in running it. Then, get milk, cardamom, bay leaf, jiggery (you can also get sugar instead) and dry fruits of your choice. For this recipe, we used cashew nuts, almonds and raisins.
Now, boil the milk with cardamom and bay leaf. Then add the soaked poha in it and stir continuously to avoid burning. When you get the desired consistency, lower the flame and add jiggery to it. Finally garnish with dry fruits and serve.
