About poojapareek

Namaste, I’m Pooja Sharma. When I moved to US few months back, I didn’t knew much about blogging. And never ever thought that I’ll be hosting one. Professionally I was an active lawyer and worked with a corporate firm in India. From my childhood, I always dreamt opening a restaurant as I am a passionate food lover and loves cooking. I like to try new recipes and experimenting with flavors and giving my very own touch to regular recipes. After moving to US, I thought to fulfill that part of my dream and it lead me to start this blog. It would be best to connect with people and bloggers to share my recipes and experiments. It can also help me with connecting other passionate foodies like me. And from their comments and feedback, I will be able to level up my prowess🙂 I welcome you and your friends, everyone to FoodnFoodie, the world of delicacies from healthy to delicious, scrumptious recipes and some indulgent desserts.

It gets difficult to get good alphonso here in US, this time I made sure to search beforehand from where I can get good alphonso mangoes. So finally I ordered boxes of mangoes and when the boxes arrived  I couldn’t resist myself from digging into them.

This recipe requires yogurt, sooji / Rava or semolina and vegetables of your choice, here I have used onion, tomato and coriander.
