Comfort Your Body and Soul with These Recipes
Comfort foods are basically foods that warm your soul. Even on a gloomy winter’s day, you would feel good after enjoying your comfort food. A comfort food is usually not an elaborate meal, but just one dish that can instantly make you feel better on the worst of days. It could be a rich food, an energy-giving food, a simple and soothing dish, or one that has memories associated with it. For this reason, a comfort food is a very individual or personalized choice. One person’s comfort food might not be another’s!
Dishes like Rasam and Khichdi are popular comfort foods because they remind one of mom’s love and care. So, these are the first dishes many people learn to cook when they go abroad to work or study! For others, Kesar Peda might be a comfort food because it connects them with their culture and reminds them of fun and festivities. Pasta in Red Sauce or Lasagne might remind some of wonderful flavours they encountered during their travels, and therefore comfort their mind. Chocolate Mug Cake and Bread Pizza are recipes that let your experience the joy of a Chocolate Cake or pizza quickly and easily, just at the time when you feel the need to pamper yourself. Soups like the Cream Of Spinach Soup Palak Soup given in this mailer are the best and most well-known in the class of comfort foods because they warm your body and soul, and perk you up instantly, even if you are not feeling well or are recuperating from an illness. If you have lost your appetite over something, a bowl of soup is just what you need to find it back!
Be it Moong Dal Chilla, Stuffed Moong Dal Chila, Kalmi Vada, Samosa or Dahi Vadas, everybody has a comfort food that makes them feel happy and secure. We have put together our heads and come up with some such dishes in this mailer. We hope you find your comfort food in it.
