Maharashtrian Pohe is a healthy breakfast or anytime snack made out of flattened/beaten rice, potatoes, peas. It is spiced with green chilies, garnished with coriander leaves and freshly grated coconut.  It is fragrant and mild. 
Poha is flattened/beaten rice. In its raw form it feels hard. It is usually washed and drained so that it absorbs the water, thus reconstituting it. It is used to make savory dishes.  Like - Potato Poha, Papads, Poha Dosa, Maharashtrian Chivda etc. Poha is available in 2 forms in the Indian grocery stores - Thick poha and Thin poha. The Thick variety is thicker as the name indicates. The thin variety is used specifically to make "chivda". 

2 cup Thick Pohe 
1 large Onion, chopped 
1 Potato, cubed into 1 inch cubes
2 Green chilies, sliced
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
2-3 teaspoon Sugar
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
2 teaspoons Mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon Asafoetida
2 teaspoons Turmeric powder
Water 1/4th cup 

To Garnish

Freshly grated coconut
Coriander leaves, chopped finely
Lemon juice

Wash Pohe and rinse well until the water runs clear. Drain all the water and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add asafoetida, turmeric powder, chopped onion, potato and green chilies.  When potatoes are almost cooked add the sugar, salt, lemon juice and 1/4th cup of water. Mix well. Now add  the soaked pohe. Mix well.

Cover and cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat.  Remove the lid, stir and again allow it to cook for 2 minutes.  Garnish with freshly grated coconut and coriander leaves. Enjoy !

Note : For a variation you may add sweet peas or dried shrimp - called "sode" in Marathi.
