Celebrate the month of May with team DFT, indulging on some delicious and hearty wraps that are diabetic friendly and weight watchers friendly. For this month's theme, I am bringing Moong Dal Kebab Wrap which is not just healthy but came out super delicious, specially when you want your kids to eat lentils.
My daughter loved it and so did my husband. This was a perfect dinner for my husband who is diabetic and is trying to shed a few pounds. Such a simple recipe without sacrificing the taste.
