Kanda Poha

Kanda Poha
Kandha Poha, is one of the Maharashtrian breakfast recipes which is very healthy and tasty in itself. Its so very simple to make yet so filling.  Its made either using only onion known as Kandha Poha or using only Potato known as Batata Poha.

I prefer Potato Poha over Kandha poha, but this time I thought I would try plain kadha poha  and it tasted really good.
