In the past most Indians who migrated to the U.S carried heavy luggage jam-packed with home-made pickles, instant mixes, and much more that could last for months. Adding to it, family, friends and acquaintances traveling from India also transported home-made Indian ingredients from back home as a gesture of goodwill.
