2 teaspoons Mustard seeds

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.

again allow it to cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with freshly
grated coconut and coriander leaves. Enjoy !

"sode" in Marathi.
