A particular blend of love

I was reading an article about an Indian festival called Diwali which means Festival of Light. This festival is celebrated by Indian all over the world and they have a very particular delicacy called Murukku that I would like to share with all.

4 cups rice grains
1/2 cup full of Love
25gm Kindness & Forgiveness
25gm Bliss seeds
2 tbsp Gentle powder
100gm Togetherness
Lovey-dovey oil
Joy leaves
Glee to taste

Rinse rice well. Dry completely. Grind into find powder.
Fry love. Once done, add tenderness and set aside for a lifetime. Mix Love with Kindness and Forgiveness. For stronger ties, add Bliss seeds, Gentle power and a dollop of Togetherness.
Add kisses to mixture and knead into firm dough. Allow dough to sit for years and years.
Sprinkle crushed Joy leaves for added Togetherness. Grease fingers. Roll dough into thin strips. Twist strips into the shape of your heart. Heat oil. Fry each murukku till golden brown. Add a pinch of Glee. Store in air-tight container. Serve throughout generation.
