We are familiar with fritters. There are many varities in fritters. I heard about poha vadai but all of the sudden I think how the poha fritter will. So I tried this poha fritter for the first time. It came out well. My little one loves this very much with tomato ketchup. We all enjoyed this tasty & healthy poha fritters.
