Steamed Happiness


EXIF: 43.0 mm; 1/8s; f/5.0; ISO 800

Let's begin the year with something sweet! This is a photograph of a patholi in making (pre-steaming). Patholi is a steamed sweet made on special or auspicious occasions; this was on Chauti (Ganesh Chaturti) day at my village. It's simple yet extremely tasty- just batter filled with a jaggery based filling with aromatic spices, wrapped and steamed in turmeric leaves, which add a wonderful flavour to it. And what made this particular edition all the more tasty, was the fact that it was made by my great Aunt in the village- this lends an extra warmth to it. And yea, does the red oxide floor add some extra authenticity to it?
