7 Vachan, Samose k!!!

Ever wondered why are Samosas always served in pairs? In pairs, but both of them are not 100% identical. The size might be different or the taste might be and may be the number of spots on each of them would be different. This might be a bit surprising to read from me. But hold on before you connect my TV addiction or the Ekta Kapoor Productions, as an inspiration for writing this blog. Naah! Its my Samosatic Friend who has inspired me.

Imagine a Samosa, approaching a Samosi for a lifelong commitment. They haven’t been through a courtship as it has been arranged one! With all other rituals done, they are left with final one – their Wedding Day!! The D day is here. All other Samosas and Samosis, within their clan are invited for the ceremony. Everyone into their chairs, seated to shower blessings as the Groomy-Samosa & Bridy-Samosi will enter together in a new stage of life. Their union will be witnessed by each Samosa and Samosi.

The ceremony progresses and the face-offs are done. Samosa still hiding the wink, and even the slight darker spots on his body, while he gazes to his Samosi. The spotless Samosi is not daring at all to look at her groom! She is still looking downwards, slightly shy, as if she is still swimming in the pool of oil. As the rituals proceed, its time for the Samosa and Samosi to take the 7 (seven) vows of Hindu Marriage.

1. With the first step they promise to nourish each other – that’s why you don’t see much difference in the size of them!

2. With the second they reiterate their determination to grow together in strength – and that’s why both of them taste equally nice, complimenting each other with their aroma.

3. With the third step they promise to preserve their wealth – do you see the spices missing off them? ย The spices are the real essence of their successful union.

4. With the fourth step they vow to share all their joys and sorrows – that’s why they lie patiently in the plate, when the might man covers them with the indian sauces and ragda. They both have the sorrow of losing the life, but joy of going together in same tummy.

5. With the fifth step they promise to care for their children – how can you forget their children! The Patti Samosas.

6. With the sixth step they vow to be together forever – only till no one has ordered for half a plate.

7. With the seventh step they promise each other lifelong friendship and vow that they would be two perfect and equal halves to form a whole – that’s why the bhaiyya gives a weird look to you, when you ask for half-plate samosa.
