A recent survey showed that the one thing that makes Indians feel most fulfilled is family. And the one time that the family can be wholly present is mealtime; sans technology. Mealtime is therapeutic: an excuse to talk, to reflect on the day, and on recent events. The dinner table can act as a unifier, a place of community.
With a colourful mix of people from different cultures we are exposed to a vibrant array of food choices that bring us together in large gatherings, especially during the festival season which is already upon us. Everyone is now gearing up for their respective festivities, be it Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid, Diwali, Guru Nanak Jayanti and finally Christmas and New Years. So much to look forward to, so much togetherness!
It’s this time of the year when you can find the older ladies busy preparing deletable snacks making sure they're perfectly in time for that special festival… Karanji and Chakli for Diwali, Biryani and Kebabs for Eid, Modaks for Ganesh Chathurthi, Christmas Cake for Christmas.
The next big one on the horizon is Diwali which is synonymous with lights, fireworks, sweets and fun with family and friends. From dozens of bright lights at a house’s entrance to a build up of louder and more frequent burst of crackers each passing day, the festive season is visible everywhere. It’s common for family and friends to drop in to each other's houses with boxes of homemade snacks.
We at Happy Belly make it easy for you by bringing all these festival favourites available at the click of a button (or a mouse!). Our modaks have been loved during Ganesh Chaturthi and now you can order perfect ‘fast food snacks’ for Navratri and spread the love by gifting our freshly prepared Diwali gift boxes!
So, eat together and you will feed more than your belly. You’ll fill up on family love – food for your soul.
