Vijayvargiya wrote on Twitter, "Poha is consumed in breakfast in many parts of the country. In fact, in Maharashtra and Western Madhya Pradesh, poha is everyone's favourite. The taste of digestible, delicious and universally accessible poha is liked by everyone, from children to elders. You too try it today."
