Friends holding a food blog gives us immense happiness 🙂 cooking new dishes, good food is one thing that is on our minds 24 X 7. But what we have on our minds for this year is also to Feed the needy .

Just that one good deed will make your day super wonderful. Hope you all agree. Friends if food finds its right place, its worth the cooking 🙂
At Miss Foodies we have decided to run a food drive this year and what better time to start it at the beginning of the year – “Feed the Needy” is what we have chosen to call it and this cannot be a success without your support. The idea is to cook for someone in need. Trust us friends your one cooked meal can bring a beautiful smile on someone’s face and it is that one smile that will truly touch your heart. We have often come across so many NGO’s which are working for this noble cause. Take out some time of your busy schedule, cook a meal and feed like a friend to anyone you see in need. Take a pic as a memory of this good deed .. send it to us at info.missfoodies@gmail.com to make it a part of “Miss Foodies good deed memory wall” 🙂 We shall share it to push our other lazy friends to do the same. We hope you are with us on this one. We invite all of you to be a part of this,whether you are running a food blog, or following us or love food………. Cook easy and feed someone sincerely hungry who finds it difficult to buy a meal for himself. Let food show its real magic 🙂

Iron-rich poha is an all-time favourite breakfast recipe, especially in maharashtra. In fact, poha can be had any time – packed in a box, a snack on the move, or a tea-time accompaniment. While you might be familiar with the common batata poha, green peas poha is a healthier alternative, with fibre-rich green peas. Vitamin c, present in the lemon juice, aids the absorption of iron from the poha, ensuring that you get the most of the nutrients in it. With the best of both worlds – taste and health – green peas poha is worth giving a try!
