    Hi instead of sprinkling water on the poha, i would suggest this ” take enough water in that put poha
    in it and wash just for few seconds and immly put
    to drain” this way you get the whole poha in one
    condition (soft) and don’t stick at all and is ready to cook.
    I do regularly this way for any poha receipie.

    Hi instead of sprinkling water on the poha, i would suggest this ” take enough water in that put poha
    and wash just for few seconds and immly put
    to drain in a strainer or put a lid on the vessel with 2
    clips so that the lid remains on it and keep it verticaly for some time ” this way you get the whole poha in one
    condition (soft) and don’t stick at all and is ready to cook.
    I do regularly this way for any poha receipie.
