Corn Poha (Makke ka poha)

Recently I saw makke ka poha on Grofers while buying grocery. Nice bright yellow - orange colour poha was so attractive. Of course I purchased it because of its awesome looks and the reason why I am posting it here is definitely because of its yummy flavour. So basically this is beauty with taste ;)

Potato - 1
Tomato - 2
Green chillies - 3
French beans - 1/2 cup
Ginger - 1 1/2 inch
Onion - 1
Peanut - 10-12
Curry leaves - 7-8
Coriander chopped - 1 tbsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
