comfort food



thepla, khadi, sweet mango pickle (chundo) - that's comfort food for me. i usually like to make everything myself except theplas and parathas. my father sends me the most delicious theplas from bombay which last for several weeks. i buy frozen parathas from the indian store on drummond street. a few days back i made khadi but was too lazy to make rice as well so i heated up some theplas instead and had a yummy mid-week dinner.

never been too hot on kadi, but i love theplas and chundo!
my comfort food is a light masur dal with rice sprinkled with some ghee and accompanied by some crisp salli.

theplas and chundo make a terrific combination.it is a gujerati allseasons food and gujjus always carry it with them when they go on long journeys.it has a good shelf life and tastes just the same when heated or taken in normal temperature.
