A stranger appeared at night ; and asked NAUGHTY or NICE ? * My entry for the Cook Gourmet Day 2 Christmas Week Contest held on Instagram (@cookgourmet.co)
They say one must never stop learning. Whether you are five or fifty, new things must be learnt. There is no end to knowledge. There is also no scarcity of it. Life lessons are everywhere. In the movies you see, in the articles you read, in the conversations you have and in the experiences you gather. There is also a lot to be learnt from the food we eat (Yes ! You read that right !) This feature is dedicated to simple things we have learnt from Indian Sweets – Laddoos and Jalebis 🙂
Laddoo, this tiny sphere of deliciousness can be made using a multitude of ingredients namely coconut, dates, fluor, dry fruits and even chocolate. Whatever the ingredients may be, one thing is common – each and every laddoo is a flavour bomb exploding in your mouth. This makes us wonder, how can so much goodness be packed into such a small delicacy ? It must be because good things come in small packages !
If you live in India or have ever visited the place, tasting a pipin hot Jalebi is inevitable. If you haven’t yet, stop reading this and go indulge in some right now ! Do it !
When someone is eating this oh so scrumptious sweet, they’re mostly feeling blissful and savouring each bite. But sometimes in the midst of it all its shape makes you wonder about the age-old adage – What goes around comes around. They say you reap what you sow, your actions come back to haunt you and if you work hard now, you will enjoy the fruits of your labour later. Other oft repeated sayings include – Do unto others as you would have others do unto you and also the slight more colourful – Karma is a b**ch.
Do you also see life lessons (or Gyaan as we call it) in the food you eat ? Share your tidbits of wisdom with us by leaving a comment below and we will feature it in forthcoming posts 🙂
