Hello All !!
Thank you so much again for all the wonderful likes and love from you all . This week I have a big news to share with you all I won the local dish of the month from live green Toronto which is a part of city of Toronto. I am very happy about that achievement and it makes me incredibly happy also being a new blogger . In that happiness I have decided to share a very healthy and yummy recipe with all of you . So at this happy moment I would like to present you all a yummy and delicious lettuce wraps filled with tuna .
I had a wonderful trip to St Jacobs market with few of my friends last week (that post is coming up 😉 ) , I did buy a lot of fresh and locally grown produce from there . I was totally attracted to the wonderful peppers I saw there and they were just for 3 bucks, that’s it I grabbed it. I wanted to make something different with those beauties other than a normal sabzi (dry vegetable dish) or an omelette. So I decided in making a wrap without using any grains!!! which is actually a much more healthier version.
I have used canned tuna here but other options you can use here is fresh tuna or mahi mahi . If you are using fresh tuna steam it in little water , salt and turmeric till it is soft and fork it . For vegetarian option you can use tofu . Marinate tofu in red chilli, turmeric, coriander and cumin powder then sear it on the pan for few minutes . Then follow the following method and add tofu instead of fish , you have the vegetarian option . So now let’s get into the details of the recipe
