Life can be hard, sometimes! Your boss not recognising your hard work at office, your bae moving out of town for next weeks, your parents again comparing you to Sharma ji ka beta- all these can make things dull for you. You might roam around, trying to find some solace, warmth and comfort, only to be met with despair and lost hope. In times like these, only a heaping plate of comfort and delicious food can be your proverbial silver lining. It can remind you of the warmth of your mother’s hug or the reassurance you feel every time your day lovingly parts you on the back.
Finding good comfort food, however, can be tricky. You can find a good tasty meal at your nearby five-star establishment, but nothing can compare to a plate of wholesome, homely meal filled with your childhood memories and nostalgia.
Different regions of India have different comfort foods. The only thing staple in all these is the nostalgia that you feel in the first bite of these dishes. Read on to find out some awesome comfort food from the various regions of India which have been reminding people of their happy past since time immemorial.

Time honoured and loved by all, this dish has found its appreciation across India. While in the north, Khichdi should always go with its chaar yaar- dahi, papad, ghee, achaar, the peace-loving Bengalis prefer it a little soupy and with lots of vegetables, and the Maharashtrians like the drier and less spicy avatar of this superstar. Perfect to be enjoyed on those rainy nights with a serving of petrichor on the side.
This dish globally known for its taste, ease of making and mood uplifting qualities cannot be left out from this list. Unlike a lot of other delicious food, this is one of the boons for the weight watchers.

The national favourite snack did not even originate in India. It came to India from the middle east.

Perfect to be had with tea, coffee, by themselves, before a meal, after a meal, basically ANYTIME.
This soft white globe of love dipped in a mildly sweet syrup is one of the most potent comfort food in the entire eastern region. In fact, a popular belief prevalent in this part of the country say that there are two types of people- one, who love roshogolla; and the others who have been lying since time immemorial.
