Some recipes play a huge role. They might be ridiculously simple, but the minute you get the first waft of that "ever so familiar
" aroma, that nostalgic taste when you take the first bite, you are transported to memories past. This sundal is that and more for me. We never had Golu, but the pooja during Navarathri
on all the 9 days was followed by different sundal for each day that mum made for us. While tempering these, I could not resist giving in to thoughts of mom, the festival and other elements that spelled "Home
" to me.
