Mira Kapoor is a self-confessed foodie, and going by her Instagram activity, the 26 year-old also knows how to cook up a storm. Of late, she has been very vocal about eating clean and local food, and promoting fresh garden produce. A few days back she posted two of her salad recipes that looked all things fresh and enticing. On Wednesday, she shared a picture of her home-made lunch on Instagram stories, and that's not all, her kids Misha Kapoor (4) and Zain Kapoor (2) had a huge role to play here. In the image we found some stir-fried aloo-phali. "The kids actually plucked the beans from the tree growing behind our house and we had it for lunch", Mira wrote in her story caption. Isn't that super cute?
