Comfort(able) Food

When we were all kids we had a favorite food.

Mine was Ulakazhangu Mezhukuperrati, it was a dish made with potatoes. Potatoes are cut julian, then cooked in water with salt, pepper, turmeric and chili powder. Once it is 80% cooked, it is then sautéed in oil till crispy. During my childhood years I lived for this. I used to eat it with everything, Chapati, Dosa, Idly (I used to slice the idly horizontally and put this dish in between, and make my own sandwich), rice and a lot more.

I used to always ask my mom I don't want anything to eat with this, just give me this. She never listened to me always served this as a side dish. When I was 10 or 11, I remember telling her that when I get old enough to decide what to make for dinner, I am going to make Ulakazhangu Mezhukuperrati everyday and eat it by itself.

Well that never happened, till today. For dinner all I had today was Ulakazhangu Mezhukuperrati and I'm so HAPPY.

So what is your comfort food?
