Green peas are one of the best plant-based sources of protein, which is a major reason why they are so filling, along with their high amount of fibre. Their high fibre content makes them diabetic friendly. I have already shared a few recipes with green peas. This matar Poha is great for breakfast and its colour is so inviting. Try this recipe when fresh peas are available.
