Kanda Poha is a typical breakfast from state of Maharashtra made with flattened rice.
Flattened rice is also known as beaten rice. If you ever get a chance to visit Mumbai,
you will find this dish in each and every restaurant for breakfast or evening snack.
Indians love this dish and it is also served as an easy evening snack.
Kanda in Marathi simply means onions or veggies.
This breakfast dish has onions but I love to add other vegetables too.
So, sharing the recipe for Kanda Poha today.
It is an easy peasy breakfast option and healthy too with all fresh vegetables.
I remember making these with my kids for various members of our family as inexpensive Christmas gifts. As the jar is filled with pre-measured dry ingredients for cookies, all the recipient has to do is add the wet ingredients and bake.
Other versions could include muffins in a jar or hot chocolate in a jar. You can use any spare jar and make it look pretty with extra ribbon, tags and ornaments.
I love the peanut butter so much that I decided to make a healthier version, as tasty as the normal one.
I love the natural flavors of the food without oils, sugar and added dressing and this simple recipe was a discovery for me.
Peanuts, like all the trail mix, have their own natural oil and it doesn't need to add anything to get a creamy and delicious result :)
And if that's not enough, the greediest palates can always add a little maple syrup and a pinch of salt... et voilà, a creamy appetite to everybody!
Favourite Memory: Diwali is almost around the corner so I would like to share once of the recipes that my mother made during this festival. Ofcourse there where so many other dishes that were made around this time of the year but Rasmalai would always be me and my brothers favourite treat. During Diwali we all used to cook as a family, everyone had a task to do and then by the time we were done there was a pleasure in enjoying the food that we made (as kids we thought we made everything but of course that wasn’t true haha) we made so many kinds of desserts, snacks and food items it’s crazy to think how we pulled that.
Fave Memory - I remember first making the recipe for Fudge from the label of the jar of Marshmallow Fluff jar in the 80s. You didn't need to worry about candy thermometers and getting just the right temperature with this recipe. It was simple and quick! It was the age of convenience...the microwave was used more than the oven in those days! (how do you like my "Miami Vice" colorway? Rad, right?!)
This quick version of the Vegetable Biryani although easy is bold and flavourful. It's lightly spiced with turmeric, cumin, coriander, garam masala and other warm spices.The vegetables in this Indian rice dish can be changed around - perhaps add bell peppers, potatoes or cauliflower. You can add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper for a kick if desired.
Pear, almond and pistachio tart, based on a classic Spanish Santiago tart, with added fruit and nut. Heat your oven to 170 degrees C. Whisk 4 eggs with 250g sugar until the colour is pale yellow. Chop or coarsely grind 50g unsalted pistachio nuts and add these and 200g ground almonds to the egg mixture. Add 50g softened butter. Whisk it all until soft and creamy. Grease a round tart tin, 30cm diameter and pour in the cake mix. Peel 2 small or 1 very large pear (comice or Williams are good for this) and cut into even slices about 1cm thick at the outer edge. Arrange the pear slices around the cake, pressing them into the mixture so that they’re slightly covered. Bake for 35 minutes or until the cake mixture is just firm to touch. Let it cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out. It’s really good served with a dollop of plain yoghurt. It’s supposed to serve 8 people, but nobody would get seconds, so I would say it serves 4 to 6.
