Food I Never Gets Tired Of..

Every morning I do a herculean task - The task is 'thinking' what to pack for lunch. Normal course is one curry (gravy) , one thoran (dry dish) and then rice mixed with curd. This menu varies depending on the time I wake up, the availability of vegetables in the house and of course my mood to cook. So some days it will be very elaborate lunch with all these items but some days it will be just one dish, either dry or gravy. Also there are days where I just make some colored rice or even pack a portion of my breakfast itself!! But whenever there is rice , it would invariably be mixed with curd. This is true even if there are other dishes as well. I don't follow the traditional course where you eat the curd and rice only in the end. I have survived many a years with only curd and rice (as vegetables spoils the taste of curd :P ) until one day I had to be rushed to the hospital with a dangerously low Hb count. So although I started eating vegetables from then on curd still remained as an indispensable item. And what's surprising me is I don't mind eating curd 365 days a year where as if it's any other dish I don't like repeating it the next day rather a while,for that matter(That's why 'thinking' what to make every day became a herculean task if that's what you were wondering). So what about you? Do you have any such "never get tired of" foods?

same here.. curd and rice.. It has been my all time fav food!!
My mom would struggle to get anything else down my throat ( I used to throw a lot of tantrum while eating).. and on one occasion my KG teacher told my mom, "Why do you always give your daughter only rice and curd.. give her something nutritious"...poor ma was helpless!!!
but trust me, nothing like curd and rice!!!!!!

I used to be a puttu banana fan since childhood.. Could eat it endlessly. Since leaving Kerala, It's like a memory alone remains of these foods.

@ sandeep : Ditto here.. that's the breakfast I make quite frequently :) curd n rice with pickle is also good, but I'm not that particular about pickles :)

Hmmm Curd rice n pickle. But I always prefer Rice n rasam.. enough I can lead my life with that forever.. ha ha :)

Candid Confessions said...

I know, what a pain to pack lunch. In as much as I love cooking I hate it to become a routine in my life!

Usha said...

Curd rice - me too! never tire of it and miss it even if I don't have it for a day.
another is perhaps dosa - must have it at least once a week.

Chriz said...

litchi fruits.. i still love them..

Dhanya said...

@ Nanditha Prabhu : Yeh that's true. Whenever I'm lazy it's curd rice for me ;)

@ Impressionist : ha ha welcome to the party :)

@ sumanth : Yeh I know.. Imagine if this world didn't have any curds.. What would people like us do? Real trouble :P

@ ap : Yeh I love appam too.. but definitely not 365 days coz making a good appam involves lot of luck too !!! Sometimes I get frustrated when the appam doesn't come out properly :(

@ Sadhana : Too bad you didn't visit my blog for long.. hmm I know one more person who is a rasam fan n she doesn't even touch curd!!

@ Candid Confessions : Yeh I know especially if you need to do it all by yourself n only for yourself.. But canteen food is forcing me to do that!!

@ Usha : Yeh I can very well relate to you.. I feel restless if curd at home is over and I haven't shopped for it :)

@ chriz : You have got expensive tastes ;)

Ravi said...

Dhanya said...

@ ravi : hey I have never seen u eating one but ;)
