Kande Pohe is a very delicious Maharashtrian breakfast snack. Pohe is basically flattened rice and is made in almost every home in Maharashtra. We used to have it at least once every week and I remember my mom used to make it a point to make Kande Pohe on my Birthday every year as it is my favorite.
Poha is tasty and easy to digest and is a good source of Iron and Carbohydrates thus making it a healthy breakfast option.
I’m sharing the recipe here. Hope you will like it.
