PostSubject: Peas Biryani...   5th January 2009, 23:58

A Bit Long but WORTH reading

Steaming
hot Peas Biryani! Mouth-watering! Delicious! Mother usually made Peas
Biryani on Wednesday afternoons in winter. It was her favourite dish to
prepare, for it was easy to make, yet a hot favourite amongst the kids.
Moreover fresh peas were in season and tasted heavenly!


She
heated some oil in a pan and added a spoonful of cumin seeds. Then she
added a handful of chopped onions. She proceeded to add some green peas
and seasoned them with salt and turmeric powder. Having sautéed them
for a couple of minutes she turned in the cleaned and washed riceand
poured in a good amount of water. She covered the pan with a lid and
let it cook on a slow flame.


Strangely,
the ingredients in the simmering pot started a conversation.The rice
was the first to say, 'I am the most important of all of us present
here for I am pure white and wholesome. I am the key ingredient to
making Peas Biryani. I am Sathya, this is the Truth.'


The
yellow turmeric powder chuckled and said, 'No longer are you white my
dear, for I have dyed you in my own colour. I am Dharma. This is my
duty.'


The peas
smiled peacefully and said, 'What is Peas Biryani, without peas, eh? We
are the most attractive and delicious part of this preparation. We are
shanti. We are peace. We are peas (peace) and our colour too is green
that is the colour of peace!'


The
salt mused to itself and said, 'Who would ever be able to eat Peas
Biryani, without salt? I am the most important of all. If I were not
there Peas Biryani would be unpalatable. My taste shall be infused in
each particle. I am prema. I love each one of you equally.'


The
onions said, 'We add the tang to this dish. We add flavour. We are the
soul of all vegetarian food. We are ahimsa. We tolerate all other
flavours, yet retain our own!'


The
pan spoke up and said, 'It's I who is holding all of you in here.But
for me, you would all have been separate identities. I have held you
together, so that jointly, you can become a delicious dish. Where would
you be without me? I am discipline and I am indispensable. '


The
cumin seeds were dancing up and down in the boiling water and said,'Try
making Biryani, without us! It shall be quite tasteless. We sizzle in
the hot oil first of all for we are devoted to spreading our flavour,
wherever we go. We are devotion.'


The
Biryani was almost ready and the oil glistened on every grain ofrice.
It said, 'I ensure that each grain of rice, each pea and each cumin
seed, retains its individual identity. I prevent stickiness. I am
discrimination! '


The
water was almost completely absorbed by now. It smiled contentedly and
said, 'I was determined to permeate into each particle of all of you.
Without me could peas Biryani ever have been made? I am determination
and I am the most important of all!'


Mother
came by and checked to see, if the Biryani was done. The gas flame
smiled quietly to itself and said, 'Each one is so full of itsown
importance. Without the power of heat provided by me, what would they
be? It is the power of God vested in me that I can give the energy to
cook. But alas, who remembers the power of God?' God smiled to Himself
as the lady turned off the gas and waited, till He was needed again.


Each
one of us in this world is so full of his or her importance. We
conveniently forget God who gives us the power to do everything.Whether
acknowledged or not, whether remembered or not, God is the power behind
doing and making everything, even Peas Biryani!
