Kande Pohe

I am glad to be back to the Blogging world after a short break and would like to wish all of you a very happy new year!!! What better way to kickstart the new year post than the traditional breakfast favourite 'Kande Pohe'?
I am never tired of having 'Pohe' and infact, it's my patent breakfast every weekend.
I have seen 'Brown Poha' in stores, but am yet to try it.



Ingredients:

Thick Poha  / Rice Flakes
Onions, chopped
Potatoes, chopped
Green Peas
Green chillies
Curry Leaves
Turmeric Powder
Salt
Lime
Cumin seeds
Oil
Coriander / Cilantro for garnishing

Rinse the Poha with water using a sieve and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
Heat oil, add cumin seeds, curry leaves and green chillies.
Saute onions and potatoes and cover till they are cooked. Now add turmeric, poha, green peas and salt and cover for a few minutes.
Finish off with a generous dash of lime and fresh chopped coriander. Maharashtrians also use coconut for garnishing and it does taste yum.
Enjoy your bowl of Poha with hot masala chai!!!
