Kanda Poha(Maharastrian style)

Kanda poha is a very popular Maharashtrian breakfast.Kanda ,which is the Maharashtrian name for onions and poha is flattened or beaten rice.This quick to make breakfast requires very few ingredients but does not compromise in taste.Kanda poha is savoured with jalebi in parts of India.In my home this preparation is enjoyed in breakfast or finds a rightful place in my kids lunch boxes.

Then the sliced onions

Now the peanuts,stir till they change colour
