                “You'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.” 
                           ― Charles Chaplin       

                                

 A world of joy, happiness and warmth can be spread by a slight drawing up of the corners of the lips- smile and the world smiles with you and cry and you cry alone! The expression of the twitched up muscle is infectious and contagious and one cannot simply resist the temptation of reciprocating a smile.



                              
                                Smile is a faculty that causes instant consciousness of happiness, joy, adoration, friendliness and mirth. It is a reflection of thought that repels negativity and creates an affable ambiance of cordiality and familiarity. An infant’s smile is sparkling, light hearted and cherubic,  


                                                 


a teenager’s may be self conscious, coy or bashful and a school boy’s mischievous, impish and playful! A casanova’s smile is amorous, a young bride’s vivacious, a wife’s charming and exaggerating and a man’s crisp and abiding yielding a sum total of a genuine sense of warmth!
                          
                           A pleasant start to the day just like the sun rise is brought about by the expansion of the facial muscles with the twinkling of the eyes and a glow on the cheeks! 

 Look around and we find smiley emoticons everywhere; on all social networking sites such as Facebook, Whatsapp, Viber, twitter and on inanimate objects like

                                      


                               


                 
 biscuits, cakes and pastries, bread and bun, doors, blinds, bed sheets and pillow covers, balls and balloons,


                             

clothes, these lovely smiling faces are omnipresent! The ever so popular smiley was created by Harvey Bell, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts in 1963. This image is the most recognizable symbol of happiness, joy and goodwill! And I am overjoyed to present this post just after three days of the world smile day which is observed on the first Friday of October!
                                        

        

Snacks are the best ways to peoples’ hearts and what better way than to innovate on a crispy McCain Smile 


                 
Chaats are always an all time favourite in my family and the folks are ever ready to binge on them! 
Here, I am presenting the Masala Sev Smiley with the exotic ingredients of sev, cucumber, capsicum tomato, onion, carrot, small papdi, cheese, sauce and the heavenly coriander green chutney.
                                        
Preparation of green chutney
Small bunch of coriander and mint leaves ground along with green chillies, tamarind, mango powder, salt, jaggery, asafoetida.
                                                 





Preparation of papdi chaat

  Mix wheat flour and all purpose flour, add cumin seeds and carom seeds, rub in some ghee or vanaspati, add salt and make a dough. Flatten them as puris and prick small holes and deep fry these puris to get yummy papdis.
                                        


                       Method of making masala sev smiley

  •  Take a Mc Cain smile, apply some tomato sauce and grated cheese on it.
  • Then apply a little quantity of green chutney paste
  •           Top it up with cucumber, tomato, onion, capsicum and carrot 
  •              Place a small papdi on it
               

                                                




            

  •  Sprinkle sev
                                       
                                               

 Lo and behold, the lip smacking masala sev smiley is ready to be swallowed in a jiffy!


                                         
Thank you McCain  
for putting a smile on everybody's faces! And giving me the gastronomical pleasure of putting up the masala sev smiley!!!



                                 The rigours of life are conquered by the widened contours of the lips. Face is indeed the index of the mind and the sideward drawing of the mouth do give a sense of what is traversing in the complex human brain!
