Why do you eat? Yeah, I know, it sounds like a pretty dumb question. Seriously, tell me, why do you eat? From childhood, we are taught that we should eat when we are hungry. But I think today we eat at all times except when we are hungry. Over the period of time, from being a basic necessity, food has transformed to something huge, something like a “way of life” for example vegan, organic, earthy, the list goes on.. Sometimes I feel food has carved it's own life!
I'm sure if we all followed the principle of eating food when we feel hungry, we would not be having issues like obesity. I think we eat food mostly to satisfy our emotions or feelings rather than to satisfy hunger. What do you think? When we feel happy.. we celebrate by eating, sad… we seek out comfort food, tensed… we do binge eating, nostalgic… try to recreate the memories by cooking food that rekindles the memories. See our emotions and food have a “twisted” relationship, whether we like it or not.
This recipe is also a result of an emotional eating. Recently when things were going downhill a bit, I wanted to reassure myself that there will be an uphill too. I wanted to remind myself about the good times and obviously no good times is complete without food, right? This particular dish brings back many good memories along with the comforting feeling that this too shall pass.
So here you go with the recipe. I really enjoyed making as well as eating it and so did the others who shared it with me. I was having a deep fried snack after a while and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience ;) Honestly, nothing matches the deep fried goodness. Sadly, like everything else in life, this too comes at a price. So if you are in a mood to indulge, this is a good choice. Crispy from outside and soft on the inside. Hot bondas with chutney and ketchup on the side and a piping hot tea, now that's something exciting to look forward to…
