Kanda Batata Poha -Spicy beaten rice flakes with onion & potato

Poha 1

 

Hello Everyone 

Today I am bringing you all a a very delicious staple breakfast dish from western parts of India . this dish is famous in several states around India , I made one which is closer to the one made in the state of Maharashtra . This recipe is not an authentic one , its my take on this delicious dish , I have adopted flavours from few south Indian dishes because I like to do that with every dish I cook . So if you see there is a difference from the authentic recipe what your mom or mother in law might have taught you , please don’t punish me LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ . So I dont have much to talk about this recipe , its not taught nay my mom , I learned it as a necessity after I moved to canada in 2012 because my husband loves it . 

When I made it for the first time , I messed it up so much this dish turned out to be a big goop of carb lol . Then I had to watch several videos , read a bit how to make it properly without making a goopy mess . I have watched a lot of videos like veg recipes of India , vah re vah , manjulas kitchen , nishamadhullika ; I can’t determine from where I formulated this recipe I think its a mix from all these . 

So I am going to stop blabbering and give you the recipe .

Nellikka achar/ Amla pickle/ Indian Gooseberry pickle

DSC_0506

Indian Gooseberry which is also known as Amla (hindi ) or nellikai (Tamil/malayalam) is a very healthy fruit rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. It is a very popular fruit in India due to itโ€™s medicinal values and health benefits . It is also consumed in various ways suck as pickles , curries , rice varieties or as sweets .

Achar in malayalam literally means pickle. Indian pickles are always very very flavourful whether they are sweet or spicy . The pickle recipe which I am presenting to you all is a spicy one and it is served as a side dish with rice and other curries . It can be made one week ahead of vishu/onam and it will be a very flavourful addition to the vishu repertoire. The pickle is generally made in gingelly oil , but I used dark sesame oil because I like the flavour of it . As usual for all the pickles the more oil the merrier the pickle would be to enjoy . Since I used frozen amla ,I thawed it well and boiled it in 2 tablespoons of water till the water was evaporated . If you are using fresh gooseberry then you need to steam it like normal vegetables for atleast 10 to 12 minutes
