Batata Pawa & Kande Pohe

Batata pawa (Aloo Poha) and Kanda poha is the popular breakfast recipe in India since it is easy and very quick to prepare. If you are not a big fan of potato like me, make kande pohe with onion, corn and some other veggies such as carrot, grean peas or any other veggies that you think of can go well with this recipe.
