Tamarind Poha

I am not a Poha lover myself and never tried to cook it before marriage though my mum made the best poha. I learnt it to satisfy my hubby's cravings for Poha and it has come out good every time.I modified mum's original recipe  and made this super easy Tamarind Poha which is one of Hubby's favourite now.
