One of the advantages of living in a home away from home is that "you" can control exactly what goes into your food and accordingly help better your health. I'm trying to do just that since the last few days. This is one such recipe I created and my dad and I enjoyed it for dinner with rotis (chapatis/Indian flatbreads). It can also be served with white long-grain Basmati rice and plain yogurt. It's tasty and yet low-fat AND it smells soooooooo nice when it's cooking, and when you take it to the dinner table and open the pot, it smells mmmm - tantalising! Enjoy! Bon Appetite!
