Milk Poha | Easy Kids Breakfast Recipe

Milk Poha | Easy Kids Breakfast Recipe

This is one of the healthiest breakfast dish. Milk poha is quick to make and doesn’t take more than 2 – 3 minutes to make this. This is an excellent food for kids and toddlers.

In south this is called as paala atukulu. Atukulu means poha. This is made from poha or flattened rice. In odia it’s called as chuda chakata (mashed flattened rice). If you are making this for toddler you may roughly grind the poha before adding to banana mixture.

At the same time it’s filling and keeps the baby full for longer. This is again a no-cook recipe. I love to add mashed banana puree to this. This not only adds additional taste to the dish but also makes it healthier for kids. This is a good food option for adults also.

You can also add dry fruits powder to this porridge. However I have added only mashed bananas to this dish.
