Kanda Poha: my baby’s favourite breakfast item!

Being a Gujarati, Poha happens to be a part of a staple diet (if that’s even believable). I introduced my baby to this delicious item when he was about 15 months old and to this day, we make this about 3/4 times in a week.

Here’s my secret recipe for making it

Poha (washed and drained)



Turmeric Powder



Curry leaves

Coriander leaves

Green chilli (optional)

Lemon juice (optional)


  • Take Poha in a bowl, wash it and immediately drain the water
  • In a pan, take oil, add mustard seeds, asafoetida when the seeds start crackling.
  • Add some green chilly while the oil is still heating up. (Step can be avoided if you don’t want to add chilly)
  • Add some curry leaves and peanuts.
  • Once the peanuts look fried, add in the chopped onions.
  • Stir till the onions become translucent in colour/texture (Meanwhile, add sugar and salt in the washed Poha and mix well)
  • Once the onions look cooked, put in the turmeric powder and stir well. Also put in some washed coriander leaves.
  • Put in the Poha and stir well.
  • Cover for 3-4 minutes and put the gas off.
  • Sprinkle some lemon juice for an extra zing.

Easy peasy right! Do let me know if you try this recipe!
