Offbeat marriage interviewed me recently about our marriage. Here’s an excerpt:
What compromises are required in order to make your marriage work?
I knew immediately that my husband would never be happy unless I knew how to cook his food. While this seems like a small thing to someone who’s family eats mostly for nourishment (well, and sweets too!), food to Rukshan = love. This means that I study South Asian cookbooks, drive long distances to Indian grocery stories, and plead for spices to be sent with relatives traveling back and forth. It also means that I don’t really know how to cook typical American dishes and feel a little intimidated if I have to cook for Americans because I don’t really know what tastes good to them. After eating so much tasty South Asian food for 10 years, American food has lost a lot of its appeal (though a juicy hamburger is still hard to beat!!)
