Aloo Pohe Vade



If u have travelled by train (which we did a lot of) you know what those words mean and how your heart starts thumping waiting for the first sight of the oily delicious deep fried balls of joy.

I lived in Goa for a bit and travelled back to Bombay at every opportunity I got. Loved to take the Konkan Kanya as every half hr the most delicious dishes would tempt u. Miss that train

Getting back to today’s post. My sons school menu has poha as an option for today. Bored of the same old poha. So made ALU POHA VADAS in my favourite appey pan. Using a drop of oil, the crispy outer cover gives a wonderful variation and texture to an old dish.



1 cup jada poha
2 big boiled potatoes
2 minced green chillies
Chopped coriander
1/2 tsp haldi
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2-1 lime juice

1) soak Poha for 5 mins in water. Strain and Drain well for 30 mins. (If using patla poha then soak for less time)
2) smash and mix all ingredients together
3) make small balls and put 1 drop oil in the appey pan. Cover and cook for 5 mins, turn over
4) when it’s nearly cooked. Leave the lid open and let it cook to. golden brown.
