How about making a healthy vegetarian Indian meal for the thanksgiving  meal this year.Thanks giving is the national holiday usually celebrated the fourth thursday of Nov every year, people celebrate this to thank god for the blessing of the harvest of the preceding year.It can also be considered as an aspect of harvest festival.

Who doesn't like tawa pulao , making it more healthy with quinoa instead of rice was one of the best thing I experimented .
