Tell me you are Desi without telling me you are Desi...
I have noticed many Gujarati people have an obsession with these "Jada blankets". My parents even took them to India. I don't know why, but some of us get cold frequently, so we like these thick blankets.
After getting married, I was at a family wedding and noticed during the Mosaalu vidhi these giant "Dhaabadaa"(blankets) coming out and being given to people as part of the "Vehchan"(gifting) and I was a little surprised.
These blankets are thick and we do love them. My family used to get them from Mexico as we live near the border, but I know many Hispanic stores carry them as well.
Have you seen them?
If your family doesn't own them, what blankets do you use?
Do you get your "Rajaai" or "Sudani" shipped from India?
We have a set of those comfy India blankets as well! While I can't find the exact blankets, here is a very nice smattering of thick, heavy throw blankets if you feel like a little browsing...
