On a Monday morning, it is almost painful to reach office, especially in winters. All I want to do is curl up in the fluffy blanket and sleep some more. Of course, reality bites and the first thing that bites you on a Monday is to rush to office before traffic jam begins.
The best part of this Monday was tasting the Punjabi delicacy called Panjiri. Well, to be honest, I haven't even heard of this dish till I tasted it. When my dear buddy Ranjit brought it back from home (Amritsar) saying that her mom made it, I had a generous helping and then some more and again more and of course, nearly finished most of it. It was so tasty and rich.
According to Ranjit, although this dish is ideal for nursing mothers, the way in which the ingredients are measured and inserted into this recipe make it very healthy for others too. The one that her mom made and I binged on is good for the eyes and help lessen headaches.
What a wonderful, traditional dish to taste on a Monday morning, isn't it? I searched the web and found a little more information about Panjiri. Here's a gist for those of you who are like me and don't know anything about it:
1. It is a popular dish in every home in Punjab, whether rich or poor.
2. Kids are fed this comfort food as it is associated with lots of love.
3. This is particularly meant to be eaten during winters as it has a warm effect on the body, combats cold and provides nourishment.
Remember, don't get too carried away by the awesome taste of Panjiri. Like all delicious things, this too can add tons of calories:) Still, I recommend you give it a try so that you are hooked to its taste forever!
