First few weeks in US -
when you are just settling down and friends give you what they cook-anything in the name of food is good. Friends are god sent.
Next few weeks -
self cooking- Wow, I cook well and the food is yum.
The weeks thereafter -
same rice sambar and vetha kuzhambu, lets try out different cusines..Mexican, Italian..etc.Taco bell is heaven.
After some tryst with multi cusine eat outs -
Oh, nothing like Indian food. Let me hit the Indian restaurant here.
After lot of naans, chaat items, panneer butter masala, gobi manchurian at the local Indian Restaurant -
homely saappadu is what I am craving for.
After some mental picturisation of home made dosai, idli, pongal -
call up mom / MIL and ask them when are they coming here?
