Maharashtrian Kanda Poha / Spicy rice flakes.
Being from maharashtra throughout.....this is one dish i have eaten all my childhood. Kanda in marathi means onions. As this dish is made of onions and potatoes its called kanda poha.
So here iam sharing this quick recipe with u.Enjoy and give me ur feedback.
You need :
Thick Poha (flaked rice) - 2 cups

Chopped potato - 1
chopped green chillies - 1 tsp
hing - 1 pinch
haldi - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
coriander for garnishing
grated coconut for garnish
oil for seasoning
salt to taste
sugar a pinch
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Wash poha and drain water completely and leave aside for 5 minutes.
To this poha add a pinch of sugar and salt to taste.
Heat oil in a pan add cumin (jeera) seeds, hing, green chillies, haldi, onion cook for 5-minutes. Now add the cubed potatoes and fry until the potatoes are cooked well and roasted.
Add poha and mix well and cover it for a minute. Add more salt if needed.
Garnish with coriander, coconut and sprinkle lemon juice just before serving coconut and sprinkle lemon juice just before serving or u can also cut lemon in quater size pices and serve alongside.
