IMG_0364Making a healthy and delicious meal is always a challenge!!

Recently, we discovered that we are sensitive to gluten and reducing/avoiding is helping. But the problem is we are not used of eating rice for dinner and now if we stop eating wheat I cannot cook dinner..:-(

It took a while to get used to this change, but I am glad that we are able to eat more salads for dinner. This change in  routine also motivated me to create various versions(Indian) of salad.

I have fenugreek fresh from my garden and I usually make dal or a curry and today I  wanted to try something new that is quick, healthy and can be added to my dinner menu..;-)

Here I am with an absolutely delicious dish that has amazing flavors and aroma. It can be eaten as salad or used as stuffing for some quick veggie wraps. If you find it dry you can as well add some plain yogurt and it tastes absolutely great 🙂

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
