Kande Pohe

Pohe is quintessential Maharashtrian breakfast. Every one has their favorite way to make and enjoy pohe. 

Today I am sharing my version 

1 medium onion finely chopped 2 cups medium thick pohe (flattened rice) 2-3 green chillies chopped 4-5 curry leaves Salt to taste Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 tsp sugar 2-3 tablespoons oil Cumin seeds, mustard seeds, asafetida, turmeric powder A handful of chopped cilantro
Kande pohe

Preparation -
Wash pohe (flattened rice) thoroughly and drain as much water as possible. You can use colander for draining water.
Finely chop onion.
Heat oil in a thick frying pan and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, asafetida and turmeric powder.
Add curry leaves and chopped chilies.
Saute for a minute then add chopped onion. Saute until onions turn light golden.
Now add half pohe in the pan over saute's onion, add salt, sugar then add remaining pohe.
Mix thoroughly , once the turmeric covers all the pohe yellow, then you can cover it and leave it for 3-4 min on low heat.
Add lemon juice, chopped cilantro, mix and then enjoy.

We also add roasted peanuts, peas, cubed carrots to pohe. These should be added while sauteing onions.
