Kanda poha (Maharashtrian style)
Kanda poha is a popular maharashtrian breakfast recipe. My aunt used to make this for breakfast during my collage days. She used to be prepare with onions and potato.
Poha is the Maharashtrian word for flattened or beaten rice and kanda means onions. This is a light breakfast which is easy and quick to prepare.
“KKAJ” food group today member’s choice recipe is Jayashri baleri ‘s kanda poha which was a new version for me by adding tomatoes in it. Got tempted to see all the pics who posted there. So I prepared it for dinner tonight. It’s really nice, tangy and spicy poha . We all loved it , thanks to Jayashri for her recipe.
