Saag is a known as a good luck type of dish that is made on special occasions. Apparently, it has special powers to assist families in “mingling & mixing” together especially during weddings. (I was told this by my Aunt)
Saag is a North-Indian dish that is a “catch all” term that for various green leafed dishes. It can be made with greens such as: mustard leaves, Spinach, Kale, Broccoli Rabe, Broccoli…as well as other healthy green veggies. Saag is very versatile and can be mixed with Paneer (Indian Cheese), potatoes, chick peas, chicken, goat or lamb. This recipe is a basic recipe for Saag that I learned from my mother. It can easily be transformed to any dish containing saag, such as: Saag Paneer. OR you can try my Chicken & Saag Curry Recipe Read More…Pin It
These Thai inspired noodles are a quick & easy dish that settles the craving of spicy, tangy, salty & sweet with these flavorful noodles. This noodle concoction is so compelling due to the variety of ingredients: tofu noodles, veggies, herbs and fruit (mango). The cool mango brings a sweet sparkle in your mouth after eating a little heat from the sauce consisting of lemongrass, ginger & Sriracha. For those of you have been reluctant to try Shirataki noodles, this is a perfect dish for it. These tofu noodles take in all the flavor of the sauce and you will not believe that its not a “real” noodle. Trust me; my hubby didn’t even know the difference The portion size is huge and still low in WW points plus, Calories & Fat. I serve with a 3 oz Fillet Mignon for a hearty meal…With the steak its only a 8 point meal!! **Don’t like steak? Substitute chicken or if you are vegetarian/vegan substitute with mushrooms.

Rajma is my 3 year old’s favorite food. Whenever I ask him what he wants for lunch or dinner….he always replies “beans and rice; the red ones” So, needless to say that this is probably the single most cooked food in my house. It is my go-to food when my son feels like being picky. It is not his fault that he loves this dish; I think all children of North Indian descent grow up very fond of Rajma. I know that I used to (and still do) ask my mom to make it as well. It a a healthy comfort food that I hope you will enjoy as much as we do. This low point, low fat, high fiber dish is a staple in our house. Serve it up with some basmati rice & raita for a low point lunch or dinner.
