Learn how to make kanda poha, cooked with lots of onions to make it mildly sweet and with potatoes to make it filling and tasty. I usually love poha/ aval/ flattened rice in any form except sweet. But I make south Indian versions like tamarind poha, lemon poha and poha upma. But when I went to Pune in June, my MIL told me, you will struggle for food there. As I said in some other post, she never knew my love towards north Indian food. I totally enjoyed food there and want to explore more food if I visit next time. She even mocked us for not cooking anything there in my BIL’s house. But, come on!! Who will sit and cook when we are in holidays??!!😆 Having said that, I have to cook this time when we are going to Langkawi this month end. Just for my in-laws sake, otherwise they will starve there! 😊.
For breakfast, my BIL bought from a nearby shop – I had this poha twice. It was so different from the south Indian version aval upma. It was mild and had a sweet taste, with lots of onions. I make it dry, but this was a bit oily. So from that time, I wanted to post it here, so here comes the time for it. After that full meals, even my blog needs a simple recipe. (Only recipe wise – not a low calorie.. this one is very filling one!)
Enjoy it hot, with a cup of tea. Perfect for breakfast or as an evening snack too.
