We all love our moms’ haath ka khaana. Be it the Makke ki Roti with Sarso ka Saag or aromatic Biriyani, we just drool. Paranthas smeared with fresh butter or fluffy Idlis with piping hot Sambhar or chutney, drive us into a food coma. And the fragrant halwas or laddoos, leave us licking our fingers off the last piece from the container! Even something that is as quick fix as Tikkis, Curd Rice, or an instant mixed veg Poriyal satisfies every bit of hunger and craving. Well, what makes the Indian diet so interesting and appetizing?
