Poha breakfast ideas, serve poha with sev, batata vada and chai, best way to start a day with this special menu.
This post is just an idea about how to serve poha as a platter for breakfast. Check individual posts for respective recipes.
This post is part of my Breakfast menu series. Check out my lunch menu series in my website.
So wanted to try that way for a long time. I always wondered what combo I can post for a north Indian breakfast.
Parathas came to my mind, but I wanted to post something with Poha firstly.
But when I went to Pune, had kanda poha for the first time. I loved the difference in the taste, flavor and texture.
The poha I make is too soft in texture, but the one I tasted in Pune was not too soft, it had some texture which I liked.
Then only I tried after coming here and posted my Kanda batata poha.
For south Indian version, I soak aval in hot water or warm water. Water level is more.
But for north Indian version, they just wash and drain water, let it soak without excess water.
So it retains it's texture. One more difference is the oil. While we use more sesame oil, it will not have a glace mostly.
But the Puneri poha was having a glace from oil as well as loaded with onion.
There is a sweet touch to this poha as well.
When I was thinking what to post along with poha, my friend Sangeeta suggested for batata vada her mom makes.
Though she asked me to post this as snack idea, I am posting as a breakfast idea.
This batata vada I made for this combo is similar to my Aloo bonda recipe.
Only that I shaped it as patties. Sangeeta told her mom first fries the vada, takes it out.
Just before serving, press between kitchen towels gently and again fries it to give it a crispy texture.
