Phov/poha/flattened rice is a very filling food by itself.There are many different varieties that can be prepared using poha and here I have paired poha with a channa side-dish with a slight sweet taste which complements the spiciness of the phovu.Phov and channa is a typical Mangalore(South kanara) breakfast.
