Punjabi’s love their food and it’s true that keep them away from good food. And same goes for actress Parineeti Chopra, who loves her food and is often seen gorging on some delicacy or the other.  Parineeti who has stayed in Mumbai for years now has fallen in love with all the street food that the city has to offer and one such street food is Poha. This early morning breakfast delicacy can be found in every nook and corner of the city and most office goers simply love this as their breakfast.

And recently Parineeti had put up a poll on her Instagram account story where she was seen asking what the right way to pronounce 'poha'. Her query was right as in Maharashtra Poha is pronounced in different ways. While some call is Pohe others call it Poha and so on.

But the foodie that Parineeti is, she has been mostly seen raving about the aloo tikkis from her hometown Ambala. This Hasee Toh Phasee actress is surely true to her Punjabi roots, but those looking for good poha in Mumbai do you know where to find it?
