Hey guys, try this quick, easy, wholesome and tasty breakfast and please don't forget to comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such quick, healthy & delicious recipes.
This is a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast recipe from Maharashtra made with Poha (flattened rice), Batata (potatoes) and kanda (onion).
There are variations of this recipe. Some people make kanda poha, some make batata poha and some just poha.
The flattened rice and potatoes are packed with energy for adults and for kids too. You can pack it for kids' lunch boxes.
To make it more nutritious, I have added mix roasted nuts like, almonds, peanuts, cashew nuts so that your kids don't have to be forced to have the nuts separately.
The onion, green chilli (I have used only 1 chilli. You can add more) ginger and curry leaves add extra flavour to the poha.
Try and relish this wholesome breakfast, lunch or snack anytime of the day.
