When I posted kanda batata poha, I got few comments they eat it with sev topped over it. So wanted to try that way for a long time. I always wondered what combo I can post for a north Indian breakfast and parathas came to my mind, but I wanted to post something with Poha. We make south indian version of poha like lemon poha, tamarind poha, poha upma etc. But when I went to Pune and had kanda poha, I loved the variation. The poha I make is is too soft in texture, but the one I tasted in pune was not too soft, it had some texture which I liked. Then only I tried after coming here and posted my Kanda batata poha. When I was thinking what to post along with poha, my friend Sangeeta suggested for batata vada her mom makes. Though she asked me to post this as snack idea, I am posting as a breakfast idea. This batata vada I made for this combo is similar to my Aloo bonda recipe. Only that I shaped it as patties. Sangeeta told her mom first fries the vada, takes it out, press between kitchen towels gently and again fries it to give it a crispy texture.
