Jalebi (Sweet) Recipe by Manjula, Indian Vegetarian Cuisine

I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate. ~ Julia Child

Cooking a meal is one of the most personal and intimate things you can do for someone. You're literally providing plated nourishment made with your own hands and creativity — even if you're following a recipe, you picked the recipe and planned the meal, didn't you? As human beings eating is essential, a common bond that connects all races, nationalities, and backgrounds. There's also something about the primal nature of it that encourages us to relax, let our hair down, and just talk to one another.

The special thing about a home cooked meal is the feeling of abundance it provides, everything you have and need is right in front of you and within arms' reach. There's no worrying about what to order, what the bill is going to be, or if you should have another glass of wine. That feeling of freedom is real, and you see it in the smiles of your guests after the meal begins.
