A walk down the food memory lane!

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!!

  1. Yo ! I hv gathered ur food hangover..everytime we are on chat..this is hw u sign out mostly, esp around lunchtime..
    & I love rock salt in evrything – be it fruit chaat or curds.. & again I binge on anything that catches the fancy of my taste buds to the point of repulsion..once I binged on rasgullas so much that I cant even stand their sight now..
     
    eat on…
    love

  4. 10 chapatis? just 10? I used to start with 10 when i was in college – a good side dish like dal and achar or Kima muttar from Ammi usually used to see 20 – 25 vanishing…

    hmm – I am very much here, just a bit busy in preparation and now half a globe away… but my heart is back there –

  5. It\’s my 5th one on Spaces 🙂 Did catch the metro when I was in Cal and it was definitely much less crowded. The fact that it was well maintained speaks volumes of Calcuttan pride in the metro. Sadly outer Cal is a different story with crowds surging on the trains there. The circular railway was pretty empty and I even toyed with the idea of just hiring a boat and drifting down hoogly. Deserted roads n car breakdowns…lemme quickly think of another thought to replace that on my next trip somewhere 🙂
