South India has its own food culture, I came to know it after arriving here as a student in National Institute of Technology Trichy, Tamil Nadu. People here have their own taste of food which could be a nightmare for us until we get used to it. It has been around a year and half so I have coped up nicely with the dosa, sambar, idly, coconut chutney, khurma etc. I don’t hate their food but sometimes I miss my country food especially the food from my mom’s hand. When I was in Nepal I used to cook too so I learnt cooking a lot of items that I like and I think my friends and family liked too. I am expert in cooking regular Nepali food. I can try cooking any variety of meat. I am perfect in MOMO and CHAUMIN. I miss them. I miss GUNDRUK, KINIMA (homemade soybean product of Rai ethnic group), SINKI, and SIDRA. But a thing to be happy is that we have organized a small kitchen in one of our friend’s room where we can cook our own Nepali food at least once a week and enjoy. I have never thought of eating Nepali food here but our desperate willingness pushed us to fulfill that demand.
