The Theme

Why I am talking today about Mediterranean diet? It is Monday and it is time for FoodieMonday. i.e. a special theme suggessted by someone in our blogger group. So this week, Archana from the Mad Scientist kitchen asked us to make a dish which follows the Mediterranean diet. Before I continue further I would highly recommend hopping to Archana’s blog for some delicious healthy recipes. One such example is here Gobi Musalam, which I want to try asap.
