poha recipe 2 ways | kanda poha | aloo poha | maharastrian style kanda pohe recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. morning breakfast is perhaps one of the challenging meals to plan and prepare. it is due to the limited time availability, yet we need something special, easy and also supply all the nutrients for the daily first meal. this generally requires a lot of planning, but there are some other recipes like kanda poha or aloo pohe that are easy and healthy morning meals.

i am a huge fan of simple and easy breakfast recipes. there are many favourite easy breakfast recipes and out of those kanda pohe and aloo pohe are two of my favourite recipes. even though i hail from udupi, but i developed the taste for it while i was briefly living in hubli, north karnataka. in hubli there are so many different ways of poha avalakki is served for morning breakfast, but the onion oggarne avalakki also known as kanda pohe was my personal favourite. it was served with fresh coriander and coconut with fresh farsan or mixture topped with it. while the pohe in maharastra is slightly different and i have shared the authentic maharastrian version. particularly i have skipped the fresh coconut toppings which can be added if you wish to. also in the aloo version, i have added tomatoes which makes it an ideal combo with sour and spicy taste in it. you may choose either one of them or combine both to make an ideal breakfast meal.

in addition to it, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the poha recipe 2 ways. firstly, the pohe recipe is typically prepared with thick or medium-sized poha. the thickness of the poha is directly proportional to the soaking time. you may have to increase or decrease based on the thickness. secondly, i generally do not prefer any farsan or mixture toppings, but it is essential for many. you may choose any simple aloo bhujia, bombay mixture or any type of farsan snacks as per your taste buds. lastly, the traditional version is always prepared in an iron wok that helps to provide additional flavour. but it may require additional oil, so a non-stick pan is an ideal option to prepare any type of poha variants.

finally, i request you to check my other related breakfast recipes collection with this post of kanda poha recipe. it includes my other related recipes like granola bar, instant set dosa, green papaya roti, mtr masala dosa, bottle gourd dosa, suji ki khandvi, stuffed dosa, masala dosa, aate ka nasta, coconut dosa. further to these i would also like to add some more additional recipe categories like,
