For this week, as i told already, that i 'm on G M diet plan (now here......i really don't know why i started it all), so according to the plan I should be having almost no grains... :) So what i had for lunch yesterday........,this palak tofu, along with the vegetable soup.. Actually earlier i thought ,oh god, i never liked tofu, now how would i even be able to eat it...., but hey all, it was really yummy, n today again i willl make it...n again n again......, A very healthy dish n yummy too....

These tomatoes on it, are not just for garnish ,i had to have them too in my diet plan, so had my tomatoes and made my dish tempting too..... :) So here goes its recipe...
