Paneer Kanda Poha Recipe
Poha is regular breakfast at my place some times I make it every day so I do lot of experiment with poha and this paneer poha is one such trial, I have no idea if there is any authentic paneer poha recipe but this is my version and it's good.  Now I make this paneer poha regularly it works great as a breakfast or snack specially if having guest at home then it's kinda different from regular kanda or batata poha.
To make it more rich and appealing I add cashews instead of usual peanuts and it's works like a charm.  If you get bored of regular poha then you should try this paneer kanda poha for a change, I am sure you will love this too.  If you want to make it more on heavy side then add potato or even carrot or any vegetable of your choice.  I sliced the paneer in small pieces so it's easy to bite you can keep the size you prefer.  This one is good for kids or as a lunch box, pair it up with a tea or juice and you are done.

Ready in less than 15 minutes, for me I do poha in less than 10 minutes as I do multi-tasking while I get the wok getting heated chop onion, while onion gets sauted I will chop paneer or potato and while that's gets cooked I will rinse and get the poha ready, on other side tea will be getting boiled too so a very quick breakfast always, sharing with you as a tip :)

4.Meanwhile rinse poha in a coriandar and keep aside, don't let it stand for long time otherwise it will get mashed. So I do this just before I need to add poha.
5. Add turmeric powder, salt and mix again.
