While most people EAT to live ......There are a Few,Ok more than a few who LIVE to eat .... i used to be in the latter group but my adipose tissue has converted and pulled me into the former group :P:P
I am a FOODIE ...Its a trait that has been passed down by my brilliant foodie father who stands by the saying "Nothing can make you happy ,the way a wafting fragnance and the savoring of your favorite dish can " :):) .... So here is a list of my all time favourite treats
1.Rasam Sadam with ghee on a cold winter evening ... mixed by your grandma and the extra tomatoes she puts in it just for you
2.Payasam - a puja is incomplete without payasam and man there are easily some 15 types ... ALL EQUALLLYYY DELICIOUS
3.Dal Makhani and butter naan- This combo willl go down in history ....
4.Maggi and Ketchup-whenever i was bored and mom wasnt home ... Magggi always came to the rescue ..:):) Still DOES :D
5.Pani Puri - i've grown up wth chaat bandi's all over the place and have eaten and Rated various bandi's :P:P ... the high point is always the stuffing the whole thing into your mouth and detecting each flavour that popped :)

8.Masala Dosa at a tiffin centre- Even though we made dosa's at home , the joy of eating that dosa with the potato and a dollop of butter ...oh and not to forget the super coconut chutney along with it was a perfect way to start a morning..eat lunch or even finish dinner ... which retard callled it breakfast foood :P
9.irani chai and osmania biscuit- my fondest memoryy of osmania biscuits is with my grandad at 5 30 in the morning before a game of golf .. the cafe wudve just opened and we would be there drinking Brilliant Chai :)
10.Rumali Roti and Mirchi ka saalan- even though they say mirchi ka saalan goes well with biryani .. i think it is just perfect with a rumali ...
