I am having a couple friends over next weekend for an afternoon cookfest. We are each suggesting a few dishes and then narrowing it down. We are thinking of either Indian or Middle Eastern or both. I am planning on making a modified saag paneer (less ghee, less frying, etc.). It just occured to me that I might make dolmades, since I love them.
Does anyone have any suggestions for very tasty Indian or Middle Eastern dishes that can be modified slightly (nothing extreme) to make them a bit healthier? I don't need ideas for hummus, etc. Veggie or Meat or Fish dishes are all welcome.
