How can you add "interest" to mundane, everyday recipes?
There's lots of dishes that you might make everyday that might seem boring / easy. Like you know, tuna salad. Or grilled cheese. Or simple sauteed vegetables / meat.
Do you have any "secret" to making these kinds of dishes more interesting? Is there a rule one can follow, relating back to flavor / texture profiles of the ingredients, or does it just come with experience (ie cooking is an art form that can not be broken down to rules)?
My favorite is tuna salad--I add some spring onions and Haldiram's Moong Dal (image below) to my salad before I stuff it in toasted bread. The moong dal doesn't change the taste profile much while adding nice crunchy bits.
