To me, the second to last line was my favorite. I think eating something "foreign" for lunch is something to which many people can relate, and you do a good job of expressing your longing to eat chicken nuggets, the symbol you use to represent being American.
You subtly weave in the idea of assimilating into America, but at the cost of your culture. In the beginning, you put a lot of focus on your Amma and the pain and pride she puts into each and every paniyaram, yet the allure of fitting in overpowers your old identity.
I think I'd like the scene where you buy the nuggets to be expanded. It's a very important scene because you are symbolically choosing American over hindi, so I think you could draw it out to make it more dramatic (and it's a good opportunity to fit in some more descriptions).
Yes. I really love the imagery in the first paragraph.
I think some parts could be cleaned up a little bit, but I think it's a very meaningful and beautiful piece overall.
