I have a question too: “How would you describe red to blind person since birth?”

Since he/she cannot see, he/she doesn’t have any idea of how it looks like. And even though you’ve tried to explain everything to him/her about being red, he/she still will not get it. So better tell him/her what red symbolizes. Example: Red symbolizes courage and love.

Ohhh, perhaps when a food item like this is cooked in the form of a ring, there is a lot more area on the outside that is nice and crisp, while the middle will be cooked just right. Difficult to do that if the dough is just in one lump. There is a similar looking food item made by the South Indians, Ulundu Vadai. A Vadai is a fried savory (non sweet) item.
