Kanda batata poha is famous traditional dish of Maharashtra.It means Onion Potato Poha.Kanda means onion, batata means potato and poha means rice flakes.It also known as Kande Pohe.Poha recipe is perfect for breakfast as well as for tea time snack.Poha made with mild spices and peanuts which make it great for breakfast because of high amount of protines and iron.The best thing which I like about poha is that it is light on stomach and easy to digest and yet nutritious.
