Notes and Tips
- Soak poha is enough water just until its soft. Use medium thick variety for making poha always. Soaking times may vary for different brands of poha.

- If you don't have time to boil potato, you can cook them directly after cooking onions. Or you could chop them into small cubes and microwave them.
