They say “Good food can change your mood” and I believe in the same. Food can uplift anyone’s mood. Imagine coming back from a hectic day at work or being in a cranky mood and someone serves you Garma-Garam Khana, doesn’t it instantly bring a smile on your face and fills your heart with joy? It does, right! 🙂
When it comes to comfort food nothing can beat “Ghar ka Khana”. No matter how much we crave for restaurant style food, we always come back to Ghar ka simple khana. If you have ever lived in a hostel, you will completely agree with me.
One thing that enhances the taste of any food is the masala we use. I have learned this from my Grand Maa as she always suggests to use good quality masala and fresh ingredients. If the ingredients and masalas are good, your dish will definitely turn out to be yum and soul satisfying
When Tata Sampann sent me this “Big Box of Goodness” – I was thrilled, excited and was keen on using them.
“Tata Sampann Masalas” are crafted with perfection and are intact with goodness. Each pack comes with 5 pouches so that you get fresh masala every time. Hygienic, quality guaranteed and are best in the market. Absolutely love this unique feature.
Another thing which I absolutely love about Tata Sampann Spices is, it’s the only brand that sources best quality spices without removing any oils from them and hence the Masalas are of far superior quality. Super impressed with this feature as the flavor and smell you get from these Masalas are fresh, authentic and undiluted. To my surprise, I could actually sniff the authentic flavor. The smell takes you back to the fields and the Masala Gardens. It takes you back to your childhood memories, the times when you used to visit your Grand Maa. *Sigh*
*Wipes tears* and coming back to the recipe 😀
Since it was Diwali and I have so many fond memories etched to it. I live in a joint family and we have this tradition where everyone eats at our place. My Mom, Grand-Mom, Aunts cooks for everyone and they make sure it’s a lavish meal. In our tradition, we prepare “Bhog” first and serve it to Lord Krishna. These are the things which I am learning from them and that makes me grounded to my roots.
Cooking for everyone has always been special to me, bringing back all those old beautiful memories and re-living with dishes prepared with Tata Sampann.
