If you could have one food item symbolize your personality, what would it be and why?

"sugar coated doughnut"

Keshi said...

I like Jane's answers. She sure is one spicy n yummy Biryani!



**If you could have one food item symbolize your personality, what would it be and why?


I think I'd be Tabasco Sauce. Hot on the tongue, harsh on the psyche and one that leaves a lasting memory.

vodka...bitter yet transparent

ceedy said...

Pad Thai Ruam Mit

Versatile - ingredients can be added/subtracted as per personal taste....but the main base is simply delicious

and why - cause its my personality...change as per mood/time but the main person behind is always positive and funny and delicious :P

APOO said...

Daal-Dhoklii

Phantom - The Ghost said...

hey Solitaire...could not think of me as a food item!! i give some reasons...

"if i am sweety sugar,
some have diabetes!
if i am spicy chillies,
some have ulcers!
if i am salty pickles,
some have blood pressures!
if i am food bitter,
some have sweet tooth!
oh Solitaire,
how should i be palatable,
i am born indigestible!
i call me a half boiled-half cooked vegetable!
will let you know my ability,
once i cook me to symbolize my personality!!"

Pavi!!!! said...

I think I'll choose table wine because it taste better as it grows older. The older the wine, the better it taste. Thanks for the post. God bless.

Neeku said...

Thats true... APOO loves Daal Dhokhli... so much... that he can even trade if for Gold !

Saache ! you can even entice him to do anything with a bowl Daal Dhokhli...

to much for his denial...I personally think he was a Gujarati in Past life... and so his affiliation and magnetism toward Gujarati Food and People in this life.

Apoo Why don't you admit it now... that you are a default Gujju Magnet =D

SMM said...

Abhinav said...

Anything edible when you are hungry..
even non edible things when you are starving!

Solitaire said...

@ Rantra,

I just had you yesterday..I mean mutton biryani yesterday!

And what is "your thing"?

Rumball chocolate? Oh no. You are making me hungry!

Solitaire said...

@ Nitin,

Chatpata?

Solitaire said...

@ Black Coffee,

Nice way of looking at rasam and rice! I don't like it and never thought of it so positively. :)

Thanks!!

Solitaire said...

@ Ashish,

Ooooooooooh! Spicy?

Solitaire said...

@ AmitL,

Aaah! Healthy, wealthy, and wise!

Solitaire said...

@ Vandita,

How are you looking at it? I think a sugar donut is bad for health! Its only tasty and good looking on the surface but deep within, nooooooooooo!

:(

Tell me your interpretation.

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

WOW! This could make a commercial for the sauce!

Solitaire said...

@ Mayz,

Awesome! And intoxicating too?!

Solitaire said...

@ Ceedy,

Delicious? :p

Who tasted you and told you that?

Solitaire said...

@ Apoo,

OK!!

Solitaire said...

@ Aneesh,

Solitaire said...

@ Quietude,

Ohhhhhh! Don't come stick in my hair please!

Solitaire said...

@ Abhishek,

DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!! I am hungry. :(

Solitaire said...

@ Phantom,

Haha!! Very good one!

You better be LETTUCE. Its good for all!

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

Why should modesty be thy middle name? Those things are true, aren't they?

Solitaire said...

@ Prakhar,

Nice!! Reason?

Solitaire said...

@ Am in trance,

Aww!!

Solitaire said...

@ Mel,

NICE! They say that about women, though. :p

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman,

Knew you would be something alcoholic! Sounds quite exotic!

Solitaire said...

@ Rahul,

Aha!! But not many people like mixed vegetables. What about that?

Solitaire said...

@ Maverick,

Because?

Solitaire said...

@ CU,

So we never know what you are too!! You are a variety of personalities?

Solitaire said...

@ Ria,

YUM!

Solitaire said...

@ Sweetsticky,

Banana is soooooooooooooo like sweetstickychewy!!

Solitaire said...

@ Trinaa,

Tedi medi but meethi?

Solitaire said...

@ Satish,

Of course it has to be icecream coming from YOU!!

Solitaire said...

@ Swati,

YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY

Solitaire said...

@ Hemu,

You don't know? Then how would I know? And if you do know, give us a hint!

Solitaire said...

@ Kiran,

Do you melt? I am a softie!

Solitaire said...

@ Neeku,

What is he in this janam?

Never knew of anyone who likes daal dhokli sooooooo much!

Solitaire said...

@ Sutta,

EH? They do have those candy ciggies..

Solitaire said...

@ Nitin,

OH NO!! Now I HAVE to go eat some chocolate!

Solitaire said...

@ SMM,

Same here! All these comments are making me hungry. Yours too!!

I was thinking that I am a chocolate covered nut..sweet on the outside, nutty on the inside!! :)

Solitaire said...

@ Daydreamer,

Yeh toh kuch bhi nahi.
Pavi ka answer padh.

Solitaire said...

@ D,

Curdled milk? :P

I love PANEER too!

Solitaire said...

@ Prachi,

HAAAAAAY! Feel like drinking orange juice now. Have you tried drinking tropicana with a little salt and lemon in it? So yummy!

Solitaire said...

@ Abhinav,

HUH?

Vaise your name sake did India proud!

Nitin said...

--chatpata
yep to some extent.. Bhelpuri quite rich in ingredients and that hits different taste buds like sweet chutney to soothe and teekhi (mirchi) chutney that can bring tears. But mostly the ingredients are quite cheap. And one more feature it takes the shape in which it is offered.

Stupidosaur said...

Dimaag ka dahi?

Stupidosaur said...

Papad pehelwaan?

Keshi said...

Keshi.

Hemanth Potluri said...

TROJAN SPIRIT said...

Mirchi ..

After our first quarrel, you might symbolize me with that. Ha ha ha ha. I am not like that.

Kulpreet said...

Pumpkin -- A large heart. So large that it is often taken for granted ( the vegetable is considered too ordinary, after all).

ceedy said...

//Who tasted you and told you that?//

I cant possible share that here :P

Pavi!!!! said...

Vandita said...

Ankur said...

mix of emotions, bundle of joy, with sulking and cryin... so am a mix fruit kinda thing which most dont like! ;)

Cess said...

Without hesitation cheese: there is around 400 hundreds varieties of cheese in France, and i like the diversity ;)

Deepali said...

All these are pretty interesting questions that you put up. I have trouble with most of them cause I am not thinking of things in these ways.

Anyway I think I finally found an answer to this one (characteristics okay but getting a food item to match all of them was tough)

Anyway I would be tiramisu or falooda. Lots of different ingredients which give lots of different taste but on the whole something that is very good.

Years back while on a formula 1 driver-driven local bus in Kolkata,the onboard vendor sold me few alien looking chocolates..

the call of the sweaty poxed vendor went like this : "aeyyyyyyyyeeee tok-mishti lojanshhhhhe " and i cdnt resist trying one...

4 of them costed me Rs. 1 :)

they actually tasted good...khatta mitha..

years later on a Kingfisher flight i was served the same ..this time served with a plastic smile by the plasticky hostess ...the khatta mitha wrapped this time in plastic too..:0

In bengali i guess the thing is called " Tock-Mishhti lojenshhe .."

Tok is prounounced like Rock !!

I guess Tock-Mishti represents me well...without the plastic mask !!!

Blue Kite Dreamz said...

i recalled the feel of tok mishti on my senses..and realized that it was also "jhal"..not "Jal -The trap :)

So yes ..."tock-mishti-Jhal Lojjjjenshhhhhe " almost represents me...
