What are you wanting to cook?  Regional Indian foods or international?  There is a lot of information here, and probably people who can help no matter what your cooking interest.

I am mostly trying to learn Indian cooking .

 

I want to start from simple Indian foods that people here usually cook for breakfast , lunch and dinner

 

I have not even prepared tea for myself , my cooking skills are a bit pathetic

 

My mom and my wife used to do it for me all the time .

 

Now i have to move to some other place to work , so cooking for myself becomes a necessity

Look in the India cooking forum:

I hope you find your cooking adventure enjoyable and that you will reach out beyond your comfort foods.  The dinner thread has all sorts of cookery, including Indian:

I am fortunate to live in a town in the US with a wide range of cultures and cuisines.  Our current mayor (the head of government) is Indian.  A former mayor was Chinese.

 

One of my projects is to figure out how to make dosa.

Hello Cooker, 

I am originally from India and cook Indian food every day, perhaps like your family did. I live in the USA since many years so I can give you ways to adapt and adjust as you try to cook Indian food away from India. 

I would absolutely Love to help!!

Shall we begin? Please look for my posts on ‘Regional Indian: cooking and baking: homemade meals’

Cooker, it looks like you have some good help offered!  We will all be cheering you on. Please feel free to ask questions and document how you're coming along with your new skills, as you have time. If you make some frightful mistakes, you can laugh at yourself and get commiseration or laughter from others in the I will never again...(Part 4) topic. We have all made wild mistakes at some time or other, and that topic is good for helping us laugh at ourselves! :D

@Cooker welcome! This forum is full of knowledge, but I'd also like to recommend to you about Serious Eat and Bon Apetite videos, both I find to be great sources of information for new cooks. They do great job at explaining the reasoning and logic behind recpies.
