When we think that we’re hungry for a specific thing – a bowl of steaming maggi, chocolate or whatever – often we’re hungry for feelings and a time in our past,
Lets be honest, how many times have food rescued us from our emotional crisis'? A bad break up, a low grade, a bad life in general?
Every single Time! Right?
So, take a trip down food lane and revisit the foods which have acted as our Prince Charming without fail..
Accept it.. Whenever you think you've got a gaping hole of void in your life, you reach out for a bowl f this super comfort food. Nothing makes you feel nourished, loved and at your best better than maggi in your worn out pajamas, comfortably tucked in your bed..
2. Chicken soup
The phrase 'chicken soup for the soul' only tells you about how comforting is a chicken soup when you're cold and need some warmth!
3. Fried Chicken
Feel like the king/queen of this world? Nothing feels like a celebration unless it has fried chicken.(whether you choose to accompany it with some booze is totally your choice!)
When you think you could use a little mood uplifter, a bar of Silk/Hershey's would definitely top your list. Right?
A bar or bars.. Totally depends on the severity of the situation!
5. Aloo Ka Parantha
What do you do when you miss mom terribly?
You dig into a sinful Aloo parantha with pounds of butter with curd and pickle enough to give you a heart attack!
Hell of an explosion of taste right?

7. French Fries
What happens when you crave for something incredibly unhealthy yet unbelievably tasty?

Nothing can lift one's mood on a rainy, gloomy day, the way pakoras/ bhajjis and a cup of hot tea can.

10. Too Hot To Handle Brownie.
When life is messy, making it messier with this dessert seems like the only option.
