Onion Bhajis my comfort food
What is the meaning of comfort food? According to Wikipedia,I am quoting, comfort food is food that provides a nostalgic or sentimental value to someone, and may be characterized by its high caloric nature, high carbohydrate level, or simple preparation. The nostalgia may be specific to an individual, or it may apply to a specific culture.
As you all know my husband is Indian and I cherish every single visit to my in law in Chennai.
Last year we were there for 3 months and I got used to the 5pm snack….more an early dinner than a snack but let’s stick to snack.
Every afternoon Nimmi and I will prepare something different for the kids and all of us.
My list of comfort food could be endless, but that is me, food that brings back good happy memories is always the best to eat.
Onion Bhajis are a superb late afternoon snack that I learn to prepare when I was there and Nimmi shared her recipe with me.
Since we moved to Nairobi I had few occasions to serve Onion Bhajis to entertain friends. Every time I start to make Bhajis I feel happy and good memories of the great time in India are flowing back. I think this is the reason why this snack never fails my expectations…because it is made with love.
Happy Onion Bhajis to you all.
