Prasaadam ( Blessed Food ) - A Matter of Pride
'Anna he Poornabrahmma' - a very famous Sanskrit proverb, means the Food is as Important ( Holistic ) as the whole Universe. The one who cooks the food lovingly and feeds it to his / her loved ones with all heart is the God / Goddess. Godly ( blessed by God ) food is called 'Prasaadam' in Sanskrit.
Naturally cooking is a matter of pride and Love.
The food may be as simple as Dal, Rice , Subzi and Roti but as it is cooked with the intention of making our own people happy, satiated it becomes tastiest, yummiest Pakwaan.
I think, by now , the cat is out of the bag. My big-fat confession is 'I CAN'T COOK'. Still , I promised Geeta that I will bring delicious Dal-Rice to her at 'Wok This Way' where she was to join me with other food-bloggers. Any Guesses, how I fulfilled my promise ? ...
My Savior angel, is my sister Sadhana ( Aamen's Mom, as many of you know her ). Sadhana loves to watch Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's #Wonderchef show and uses many of the #WonderChef Appliances .No sooner did I call her she packed Dal-Rice in cute #Wonderchef Magic Meal box plus spoon, plate, tissues and sent it over through Aamen to my home. Thanks to #Wonderchef Within an hour I reached the designed venue, where Geeta was waiting with other blogger-friend. Before I could serve her a plateful of Dal-Rice, Geeta served the first plate to another blogger, who was also starving. As soon as Geeta ate the first spoonful, she awarded me with her dimpled smile and her eyes twinkled ' YUMMY '. That was the moment, I realized, that Cooking is not just a chore but a matter of pride for most, that's why Mothers cook so lovingly for their family and friends.
