Indian Comfort Foods you must have

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!
