One thing I miss most about home is food. The picture on the right shows a packet of Dal Makhani, a North Indian delicacy. Dal Makhani is prepared by soaking lentils and beans overnight and then cooking them with onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes and spices. All over the world, Dal Makhani is now recognised as a quintessentially Indian dish. With improved technology, it is now manufactured in packets like these where the Dal is pre-cooked and just requires reheating. This packet of Dal has been fulfilling my food cravings for the past two years and I'm sure will do in the future too.
