Welcome to Everyday Indian cooking!
Kanda Poha is one of my favorite recipe very tasty, simple maharashtrian snack , this is very popular in Maharashtra, I specially love to make pohe on sunday morning and enjoy it with a cup of tea.
So lets go over the ingredients needed for the pohe -
2 cup thick Poha
Quarter cup peanuts
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
5-6 curry leaves
2 tsp lemon juice
6-7 strings of chopped coriander leaves
2 tsp fresh shredded coconut (optional)
1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
Salt to taste
Wash and soak poha for couple of minutes, drain the excess water in a colander and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a non stick kadai. When oil is hot add mustard seeds and wait till it splutters, add cumin seeds, green chillies, curry leaves & turmeric powder and saute it for few seconds, now add peanuts and fry untill it turns light brown, add chopped onions mix it well, add salt and fry till onions are translucent.
Now add poha( make sure that the pohe is drained well and there is no excess water) into the kadai squeeze lemon juice and mix it well. At the end garnish with chopped coriander and shredded coconut. Serve hot.
Enjoy it with a cup of tea!
