Potato Poha-Kanda Batata Poha - Potato Aval

Back then when I start my career I used to have Maharashtrian  colleague. Poha is one of regular lunch box item. I love Poha also. She used to bring potato poha quite often I learned the recipe from her mother. It is so easy and healthy. My mum used to make poha / Aval more for after school snack than meal by itself. But after my marriage  I do this for main meal. It has all my favourite ingredients Lemon, Poha / Aval. Peanut.. Yummy!
