Kande Pohe



Kande Pohe is very popular breakfast dish in Maharashtra. I am a big big fan of Kande Pohe and this is all time favorite dish in my family. When I was living in a hostel, I used to eat this almost everyday. Now you know, why I named my blog this title. :) One can add lots of variation into this recipe to suit their taste.
