Comfort foods are basically foods that warm your soul. Even on a gloomy winter’s day, you would feel good after enjoying your comfort food. A comfort food is usually not an elaborate meal, but just one dish that can instantly make you feel better on the worst of days. It could be a rich food, an energy-giving food, a simple and soothing dish, or one that has memories associated with it. For this reason, a comfort food is a very individual or personalized choice. One person’s comfort food might not be another’s!
Dishes like Rasam and Khichdi are popular comfort foods because they remind one of mom’s love and care. So, these are the first dishes many people learn to cook when they go abroad to work or study!

Pasta in Red Sauce or Lasagne might remind some of wonderful flavours they encountered during their travels, and therefore comfort their mind.
