BM #118 Week 4 Day 2 - 

For today, I have this version of poha with spiced up paneer and mixed vegetables. I found this version appeals to many paneer lovers. 

Thanks to Priya Srinivasan for this inspiration. I have tried different combination of vegetables and all of the versions were just the same and made my love for poha stronger. :)
