recipe notes for Kanda batata Poha :

  • Use medium thick rice flakes. Don’t use very thin rice flakes. You can also use brown rice poha.
  • If using potatoes I would always go for boiled potatoes. It makes Poha making super easy and quick. Although its optional and personal choice.
  • Poha must be served immediately after cooking. If you keep it for the longest time it might get dry. Just add a tablespoon of milk and mix it. That might give enough moisture to poha and make it better.
  • While cooking the onions do not overcook them. Let them sweat a little and that’s it. The crunchy bite of onions tastes great in poha.
  • The amount of oil is absolutely necessary for poha. Do not reduce the oil in order to make it healthy. It won’t taste good. A little generous amount of oil is necessary for tasty poha recipe.
