  1. Hi Madam, I love this recipe. Is it possible that we make some extra mixture and keep it in a jar to be used whenever needed? Will that mixture last? Thank You. Waiting for a reply from you.

    1. Hi,
      sorry for the late reply. If you are going to store the mixture in the jars, just add 1 cup of wheat rawa / cracked wheat also while roasting and powder with other items and keep in the jar to make it more healthy.

  2. Sorry to post again. I meant extra mixture of roasted powder of poha and oats. Thanx.

  3. do you wash the poha before dry roasting?

    1. No need for washing the Poha. Get good quality one
