Poha is a very popular Breakfast recipe which is Healthy , quick , easy to prepare. Today I’m sharing Poha with Paneer  which is different from regular version of making Poha with Potato. I added Vegetables and Paneer to make it wholesome meal. It is a One Pot Meal and can be eaten as Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner . Try with red rice Poha which will be diabetic friendly recipe . Red rice is the special variety of rice found mostly in the Southern eastern Coastal regions of South America . High in fiber because of bran . Great Meal option for diabetics as it promotes slow release of Sugar into the Blood stream . It also keep you fuller for Long time.

                      Paneer is the common type of Cheese used in Indian Cuisines . Paneer is soft in texture and holds shape after Pan frying  because Paneer is well drained from Whey. When Pan fried it will be little Crunchy from Outside and soft inside. Paneer is a good source of Protein for vegetarians. 100 gms of Protein yields about 18 gms of Protein for muscle building and repair . It has Calcium apart from Protein and great source of Conjugated linoleic acid a fatty acid which helps in loosing weight by increasing the fat burning process in the body .
