I had been saving Srividhya’s tag for a busy day and here I am today – running for different meetings amidst the huge chunk of work that has just landed. Onto the questions and my answers now!
1.What is the first dish that you cooked?
Ok, this one is making me think a lot. I have loved being in the kitchen as long as I can remember but strangely I don’t remember the first dish. It has to be making dosa, for sure. Dad loved dosas and to impress him, I always tried to make the crispiest dosas.
2.What is the first dish that you cooked for your better half? (If you are not married, you can tell us what you are planning to cook for him/her)?
Sambar. This I remember very clearly. We were just friends back then. I had invited him home one fine afternoon. I insisted that I prepare the Sambar and amma obliged. S still praises about that Sambar.
3.Which food were you reserved to try first but then liked later it since you acquired the taste?
Mushrooms – acquired a taste for it only after wedding.
Brinjals – I never thought I would like this vegetable.
4.What is your comfort food?
Hot rice with amma-made Avakkai pickle with a dollop of ghee – yumm!!! With potato fry on the side – its heavenly.
5.Which dish of yours you like the best?
My Pasta dishes
6.Which dish of yours your family likes the best?
My biriyani – both mushroom and egg, is the favorite for S.
Amma and the sister love anything I prepare. Dad likes my spicy paneer dishes.
7.What is your favorite street food?
Masala Pori – especially from the streets of T.Nagar. Whether I go there for shopping or not, I make a visit just for this spicy pori (puffed rice) when in Chennai.
8.Tell us about any of your kitchen disaster story.
For last year’s blogathon, I wrote a post on my killer dishes. *ok now you can stop laughing*
9.Any one or two food confessions 😉 😉
I like Amul milk powder a lot. In fact, recently got a small pack
to prepare a sweet as my snack.
I can eat potato in any form. At times while making potato roast, I reserve half a boiled potato just for me to eat 😀
10.Apart from basic stuff, like milk, yogurt, veggies what you have in your fridge or in pantry? (Name any 3 items)
Active dry yeast
11.Any food related or cooking resolutions for this year?
To try and eat healthy as much as possible.
Not to eat out when the same can be cooked at home. To basically get away with the occasional laziness to cook.
12.In our custom when you goto Kasi, you need to give up one of your favorite veggie and fruit. So you cannot eat that veggie or fruit from then on. Which one you would you give up? (It should be your favorite one)
Vegetable – Potato
Fruit – anything is fine 😀 Not a big fruit lover you see!
13.You need to prepare a 3 course meal for a party? What dishes will be there in your menu?
Cream of broccoli and Almond Soup/ Carrot Soup
Chilli garlic baby corn/ Crispy fried dragon vegetables
Mango/Strawberry Cheese cake
Thank you Sri, for tagging me. It was fun answering your questions 🙂
