I have been in USA for sixteen years. I have never cooked turkey. It just didn’t occur to make a traditional “thankgiving” meal. 

A traditional thanksgiving meal includes but not limited to : turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, gravy, rolls, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and so on.

Last year, I took an oath to make a traditional thanksgiving meal.

Since I was unable to obtain a kosher/halal turkey, I was stuck with chicken (I wasn’t too bummed out about it as turkey is huge and that would mean a lot of work, too). I made stuffing, mash potatoes, and cranberry sauce. It was a different experience.  A different taste. A different terrain of flavor. 

I couldn’t help but also add my traditional entrees: biryani and haleem.

It turned out to be a grateful thanksgiving: food and family, basic need of a happy/ healthy life!
