Food Platters!

Dear Readers,

In this page I am sharing some food platter pictures. Some are homemade and others were served to me at different places around the world. Many of these platters are comfort foods for us. Comfort food is food that is simply prepared and associated with a sense of home or contentment. For many of us, our comfort food is dal, chawal, roti, sabji- lentils, Indian bread, and rice, while for my South Indian friends, they crave Rasam and Rice…After all those parties, we crave simple food. Here are a few platters for you!!

Best wishes!

A delicious, simple and healthy food for everyone.
