In India, this is the snack usually prepared for breakfast . Since I am from Goa(India), we include this bataat fov (kande pohe) in the snacks along with other type of pohe like dudatle fov ( Beaten rice in milk just like kheer), Takatle fov( Beaten rice in butter milk), Rosatle fov( Beaten Rice with Coconut Milk) we prepare to celebrate Diwali .
Today I am going to show you how to prepare Bataat Fov / Kande Pohe /Tempered Beaten Rice. In this recipe, poha or red beaten rice is first washed and soaked for 5 minutes. Then it is tempered with some spices and served hot.
