Kanda Poha

on April 19, 2015

A Quick and Tasty breakfast !! Also very filling and delicious. This is a popular Maharastrian breakfast, I was looking for a perfect method to make this, and finally found it in my guru “Sanjeev Kapoor’s” website 🙂 This is a perfect breakfast for a busy morning (working gals like me will surely agree to this 😉 ) I loved the taste of this, and this recipe is for keepers !!


  • Pressed rice (poha) thick variety : 400 grams
  • Onions chopped : 3 medium
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar : 1/2 teaspoon
  • Oil : 3 tablespoons
  • Mustard seeds : 1 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida a pinch
  • Curry leaves 6-7
  • Green chillies chopped 6-7
  • Turmeric powder : 1/2 teaspoon
  • Potato boiled : 1 inch pieces 1 medium (Optional, I don’t prefer to add this)
  • Lemon juice : 1 teaspoon
  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped : 2 tablespoons


  • Wash the poha in a colander. Poha should be moist but not mashed. Add salt and sugar and mix lightly.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and when they splutter add asafoetida and curry leaves. Sauté for half a minute and add onions and continue to sauté.
  • Add green chillies and mix. Add turmeric powder and mix. Sauté for two minutes and add potato and poha.
  • Mix and cook till poha is heated through. Add lemon juice and mix lightly. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
