Kande Pohe ~ Easy Breakfast Recipe

Sharing is caring!

We are starting the third week of Blogging Marathon and I will be doing some No Oil Breakfast dishes. While I could have been very strict with the oil part, I felt it makes no sense in skipping the oil part completely. So allowed a maximum of two teaspoons for the entire cooking and the dish should not have any butter or any other fat in any form. That I tell you is quite a challenge by itself. 
We came back from our vacation last evening and it’s been so hectic. This is something I made for breakfast the day before leaving and I again made it for breakfast on return. That should tell you how much I ended up loving this dish. While we make different versions of Poha at home, I never actually did the famous Kande Pohe from the Maharastrian cuisine. So felt this was the apt time for me to attempt making it.
This really makes such an easy dish to rustle up for breakfast, taking no time to get done. I used only a teaspoon of oil and it really helps if you use a non stick pan. I use mostly non stick pans, to avoid using more oil. And this is one such dish that really turns out great with just few drops of oil. 
Between, I am running short of ideas for the rest of the two days, how uncool is that!
