I was tagged by Viki a month back . Sorry Viki , i could make it only now .
1) What is your take on organic food , is it a big deal for you ?
Upto my knowledge , i think we don't get Organic foods in India . But , when we were in Uk , we have tried some infant foods for our daughter with doctors recommendation . She never preferred to have it , as the taste was different . My friend's son , who used to take organic food when in US for almost a year is finding it difficult to take proper indian food . Now , they suffer a lot to feed him.
As you said , organic foods are too expensive . Why should i spend unnecessarily on those foods ,if i get also those healthy benefits from normal one ? .Definetly , i will go with normal food than organic foods . Plan a healthy eating habit . Earn a healthy life.
2) Do you time your breakfast,lunch & dinner or eat when you are hungry?
I strongly believe that we can take proper food only when we are hungry . We can even judge the quantity of food , that can be consumed normally by you rather than stuffing heavily . Only when you are feeling hungry , your stomach is clean and ready to accept the intake . If you maintain proper time schedule for breakfast , lunch and dinner , we automatically feel hungry at the appropriate time . We should train our kids also in the same way .
3) Who inspired you to cook or bake ?
Since I was born and brought up in a joint family for nearly 15 years . My mother , fours aunts and the chief chef , my grandmother are my inspirations . Each one have their own unique and special recipes .
4) You try a new recipe and it does not turn out good,what will you do ?
Trial and error recipes are the best tutor to become a good chef . Those experiments will help you to sort out do's and dont's . We will consume the output untill otherwise very badly spoiled or burnt .
5) Name three ingredients you consciously avoid or eliminate even when the recipe calls for it ?
I will not use ready masala /pastes , baking soda , pacha karpooram and don't prefer yeast .
6) Name few things you have to use in most recipes ?
All the essential spices and home-made powders for a proper indian style cooking .
7) How important is eating meals together as a family to you?
I feel that to be the most special and the happiest moment in our daily life . Though , we cannot have it for breakfast or lunch but has to be for dinner . When you serve the food cooked by you to your loved ones and see them enjoying the food , we feel great and to be the happiest person/moment .
8) You do not like a particular dish at your favourite restaurant,what will you do?
I will have it silently without any words . But will remind myself not to order it next time.
