To make this all you need to do is follow these simple steps:


2 Cups of BechamelĀ Sauce

1 1/2 cups of Boiled Corn

Chillies 1 or 2 (as per your taste)

  • Add black pepper and chillies to your BechamelĀ Sauce
  • Fill the Canapes with the mixture.
  • Top the canapes with shredded cheese and serve it with a smile!

Day -7 : Comfort Food – USA v/s. India

As per wikipedia,

Comfort food is traditionally eaten food (which often provides a nostalgic or sentimental feeling to the person eating it), or simply provides the consumer a familiar meal, soft in consistency, and rich in calories, nutrients, or both. The nostalgic element most comfort food has, may be specific to either the individual or a specific culture.

For me, Comfort Food is the food you like to have when you are sick or tired or not in the mood of cooking some heavy stuff. Like some soup or one dish meal type of thing.

Chicken Soup is classic comfort food of American culture, so is Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. For Indians, traditional comfort food means Khichdi or Curd Rice, which you don’t love to have on your routine day, but works as a therapeutic food when you are sick (I can see some weird faces on hearing names of Khichdi and Curd Rice). Americans haveĀ  Ice-creams or pies to cure their blues, Indians have “Aaloo de Paranthe with lots of Makkhan” or “Garmagaram Pakode(Fritters)”. Americans have Mac-n-Cheese when every other dishes fails, Indians have Golgappa/ Panipuri/ Puchka (“Bhaiya ek extra puri dena” is something that gives us Royal Feels)Ā and Maggie (All ready to eat noodles are called ‘Maggie’, Period.).

For any Indian, Jalebi, Gajar ka Halwa and Gulab Jamun is so much on top compare to Choco chip Cookies, but for Americans Choco Chip Cookie has the place of Gajar ka Halwa and Vice-verse, same goes for Hamburger and Bhelpuri (we love having Bhelpuri on Chawpaty, right?)

So you tell, what you like to have, Dumplings or Samosas? Lemme know your opinion, I’m having my Rajma Chawal šŸ˜€
