Mom's Spice Cabinet

My family immigrated to the United States from Malaysia in 2012. Our ancestors were from India and we try to stay connected with our Indian culture. We stay connected with our culture through festivals, gatherings, but especially through our food. We love cooking with a lot of different and various spices. My mother makes me my favorite dishes at least once a month. We moved here from Malaysia for a better life and for a better opportunity. Although we do miss home and our extended family, eating Indian food reminds us of home and we cannot wait to visit home soon.
