Kanda batata Poha/ Flattened rice

What I've been upto lately I have to write here that I wouldn't want to make a post on my blog - watching the same movie back to back whole of last week ever since I first watched it.Its been a while since I've gone bonkers over any movie.

If I start writing about the movie this is going to be a tad bit long post so scroll down to see this beautifully yummy and easy recipe.To sum up the movie really shortly, Om Shanthi Oshanna is a recent malayalam movie with the leading pair of the industry Nivin Pauly and Nazriya.The movie is really well made with good songs, an interestingly made love story and good sceneries.And to top it all i love the pair.The heroine is really cute and bubbly and its about her quest to find the guy of her dreams herself.The dialogues, one liners and everything is just so funny and entertaining that I keep watching it again and again.

This recipe is a quick and easy to make breakfast or snack item.My family loves it especially the kids because I add lots of potatoes to it.Many times I even make it for after school snack and its well appreciated even then.
