Kande Pohe

The ultra-famous breakfast of the state of Maharashtra! High on carbohydrates, low in fat and super quick to prepare, makes this a real breakfast-worthy dish! 7 out of 10 homes in Maharashtra prepare this dish for breakfast. Pohe is basically flattened rice, tempered with oil, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, chilies, turmeric and curry leaves.

There are many versions of it but this one’s my favorite. Add some potato slices to it and it becomes Kande-batate pohe. If kiddos at home don’t like any specific veggie, just add it to pohe and don’t worry about them not eating it.

I remember those weekend mornings at home back in India, when Aai used to ask us in the morning if we are okay with Kande Pohe for breakfast. I don’t remember a single time we had been reluctant to say yes to it. That sound of tempered chilies and curry leaves in hot oil will make you crave for this savory breakfast. A garnish of finely chopped cilantro and freshly shredded coconut will make it even more beautiful and then you just can’t wait anymore! Read More
