Kande Pohe is a Maharastrian delicacy .This is a very easy recipe. I have made only very few times.The reason behind it is I have a Marathi Friend 'V' ,whenever I think of it she will prepare it for me.I will leave the authentic Maharashtrian do the magic.Pohe/Aval/Flattened Rice combined with Potatoes,Onions is "kande Pohe".I guess if you let your creative juices flow you can add any veggies to it.It will taste divine.'V' had mentioned that they have this dish during fasting/to break the fast as potatoes and Pohe are packed with good carbs and gives immense energy lost during fasting.Pohe are easily digestable form of rice.I am sure the edible tuber is the favorite veggie for most of us.Today's recipe is a courtsey from my mom ,she prepared it for our lunch boxes(She has come to stay with us for sometime :)) .She learnt it from one of those street food wallas when she and my dad made a recent trip to Jaipur.This dish always reminds me "Simplicity is Divine"
