POHA OMELET

                20150311_093627.jpg   

ONION POHA ( KANDA POHE) is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast recipe. My mom used to make Poha often for breakfast, it is either made by adding Onions , Potato’s or both in Poha. It is a light breakfast which can be made easily.

BUT…

Here I present my new version of Kanda Poha, Which is Equally tasty but not as light as normal Kanda Poha , as it is covered with  the blanket of Omelet.

Its quite different yet interesting and even more tastier then simple Poha…

This Combination tastes extremely good.

If u dont like kanda poha and if u try it with omelet for sure u will start loving it.

Omelet is tasty and super-quick to knock together.

It can be served for breakfast as well as u can skip your lunch as u can also have it for brunch.

This recipe is specially dedicated to those who don’t like to stay in kitchen for long hours…

So, lets start…

At  first we make POHA

PROCEDURE FOR POHA

Rinse the thick(jada) Poha in a strainer under running water but don’t soak them in water. (Rinsing the Poha grains softens it easily.) And then keep it aside till the water drains out completely.

Heat oil in a pan, crackle the mustard seeds.

Add green chili ,curry leaves & half cut cashews or nuts.
