When we were kids (thats how my grandfather begins every single anecdote of his) we used to gobble down 10 rotis/ basketfull of mangoes/ uncountable sweets especially barfis and rasgullas (what is this fascination with rasgullas hmph)
No i don’t do that and my generally small appetite (which is small only at home) never really permits me to and if you add it with diet control and waistline management then i would consciously avoid every high calorie food.
But the truth is, I’m a Foodie. Atleast the love for food has passed on, lets leave the cribbing for Good food to my mother’s woeful stories.
I can recall only 2 things which i used to eat regularly, and I’ve had them so much that I’m sick of it.
Every single day i used to have banana’s, cut cround with rock salt sprinkled on it. I only realised how used to I had become to this form of fruit, when I asked me little cousins- What! How can you have it without rock salt! So now I’ve got them hooked to this combination too.
(Ok perverts-you’re not sup2 take tht in the other sense) 😛
Another regular on my menu was lady’s finger or bhindi or okra (its called okra right?) And this vegetable is precisely the reason why i never learnt to eat any other vegetable. And now my nose invariably turns up at the slightest mention of bhindi. I still like it fried though 😀
My taste buds are such that, if i taste something new and I like it, then i want to have it as regularly as possible, until i get super saturated.
You must be wondering, why the hell am i talking about food.
Oh well Go on a fast and you’ll be dreaming, craving n hanging your tongue out for food!!!
Currently reading-Family Matter’s by Rohinton Mistry and I’m quite liking it. After a long time, a book which is keeping me hooked! The typical Parsi family and their attitudes, the words they use and the entire setting appeals, making it an interesting read!
Has anyone tasted the new pizza hut dishes-kabab on pizza and rolls and stuff??
k there i go again!!
