ABOUT Kanda Batata Poha RECIPE

Kande Pohe is a very popular and extremely delicious Maharashtrian breakfast or anytime snack. It is my absolute favorite. I have grown up eating this poha and I can eat it almost every day. I like it even more when it is made by my mom. So, today I am sharing my moms recipe and I am sure you will love it .You can add peanuts too as some enjoy with it. But I like the authentic maharashtrian style of poha.
