Sometimes Namrata Baipally eats hamburgers and pizza. She likes french fries, which she also enjoyed fairly often in India, her home country.
But the Central Michigan University graduate student also misses the traditional Indian food that she can’t find around Mount Pleasant.
Two or three times a week, she prepares some of her favorite Indian dishes, such as mushroom curry, to get a taste of the traditional, spicy foods she ate at home.
