Kande Pohe



My mom in law makes the best Pohe…As far as my memory goes,pohe is the only item made for  breakfast at my in laws house on sundays…


1 cup jada Poha(thick pressed rice)

2 Onions chopped.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1 tsp Jeera .

1/2 tsp Asafoetida.

6 Curry leaves.

3 Chillies.

1 tsp Haldi(turmeric) powder.

1 tsp Sugar.

Salt to taste.

2 tbsp Grated coconut.

1 tbsp chopped Corriander leaves.

Juice of half lime.


Heat oil in a kadhai.Add mustard seeds,jeera,asafoetida,curry leaves and chopped chillies.Saute foe a minute.

Add onions and haldi powder,saute well.

Add washed and drained poha(thick pressed rice) and salt and sugar.Mix well.Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Switch off the gas and add lemon juice,mix well.Serve hot garnished with grated coconut and chopped corriander leaves.

Tip-This is a basic receipe of Pohe,various things can be added to this dish to make different versions.Diced potatoes are commonly  added to pohe,other things like soaked moong dal(with skin),green peas,sprouted moong,grated carrots can be added to turn this dish into a complete meal.

Few days back on one of the cookery show on TV ,I saw a receipe of protein rich pohe,In the above receipe roasted groundnuts,sprouted moongs and cubes of tofu(refer glossary) were added.

Happy Cooking !!!
