Thank you everyone for all your comments, I was totaly surprised !!!! on this first blue ribbon. I did not know "Just A Pinch" sent these in the I know with weight struggles and losing 80lbs, I just wanted to share tasty foods that you can eat with out guilt. Calories add up and you don't have to eat much to gain, just cut out as much fat and sugar in a recipe and you can eat the same amount you have been. Never hungry... and you don't even know you are on a diet because you are still enjoying good food, friends and life.... I will post more recipes that you can enjoy.... Wonderful summer recipes coming up for you all.... eat and enjoy... God Bless.... Marti Green :)

My husband cooks Indian Cuisine, Gujrat Style and I know that this is delicious....Coking Indian one has too adapt to the preparation to make foods, healthier(frying & use of ghee)..Watch the tumeric for it dyes yellow. Ayurvedic like, Tumeric is bitter, pungent, astrigent like, very heatng and increases bile for good digestion....

This combination sounds great. I think I'll try your cumin/ginger/turmeric/cilantro mix on some roasted cauliflower tonight. I wonder what adding a little asefoetida to the mix would do ... Hmm, and I've got some milk to make paneer ... and spinach. Sounds like we're going South Asian tonight.
