Hmm...Rice...(Just making a point here.)

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 4 April 2011 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

While the week away was very relaxing and good...batteries recharged and all that...the taste buds and gastric juices rebelled in their own way - yearning for South Indian Rice...

Food is COMPLETELY different in North India and while it was lovely, different and tasty for the first few days..the novelty soon wore off...
and the "South Indian " restaurants werent South-Indian-enough for my taste buds.

Now, this is a hurriedly cooked - tomato fried rice within 10 minutes of getting home.

AND IT WAS HEAVENLY !!

I would like to emphasise here that the North Indian cuisine is very good...
The point I am making is that it is incredible how we are programmed to our own staple food - so much so - that only a week without - makes one yearn for them.

I am sure it is the same - all over the globe.

It's exactly the same! My yearning is for tea and toast. I can get tea and toast anywhere, but it's never the same as the way that I make it in my own kitchen!

Travelling is exciting and fun; but be it ever so humble, there is no place like home! Glad to have you back Sunder! ;-)

Well, I spent a year in Japan and really enjoyed the food there. In fact, I prefer it over the food we eat here in the USA.
