Tastes which are different

November 5, 2009

I call myself a foodie, but then i am very choosy about what i eat. The food i eat must first look good and it is only then that i at least keep it in my mouth for tasting it. My mom still has a tough time with my picky choices :|Many have called my food habits weird but i find it completely normal and listed below are few such tastes of mine.

Chocolates — A complete No No

I know this sounds weird but I am the one rare species which doesn’t like chocolates. I dislike most of the varieties of chocolates and same is the case with chocolate drinks. The only ones i eat are 5star, Milky Bar and Bar-One at times( i might be sounding like a school kid listing the chocolate names but these are these 3 are the only ones i eat , i am bound to remember them) . So all the time people give away chocolates for birthdays, parties or any other reason,i simply take them to avoid questions as to why i don’t like those chocolates and to further avoid a loong discussion on how people cannot like chocolates, and give those chocolates to someone later. My Friends in College and My brother at my home were benefited a lot by this taste of mine as they got to eat all the chocolates on my name.

Ice- Cream — Only Vanilla

Ya ya i can guess the expression on your face. I like ice cream and would love eat loads and loads of it but it has to be Vanilla πŸ™‚ Strawberry or mint would also do but Vanilla would always be the primary choice πŸ™‚

Once when few of my cousins were gathered together for lunch, one of my aunts gave me butterscotch ice cream and i said i don’t want to eat it. She was thinking i was feeling shy and she was asking me to eat it again and again. It was only when i said that i only eat Vanilla, she stopped asking me and everyone around shared a hearty laugh at my expense 😐

MilkΒ  — With only Sugar

The one and only healthy thing i do everyday is have a glass of milk and i would like my Milk to be plain i.e only a spoon of sugar and nothing and i mean nothing with it. The milk should be warm not hot and it should not have the cream which develops over it. I would filter the milk if i see a slight trace of cream over it πŸ™‚ I have tried and tasted few of the health drinks but none of it tastes better than plain milk and hence i stick to Plain milk. Again many have been surprised by this taste of mine.

Curd Rice with Chicken Curry

Many have told me that it is a unhealthy combination but i simplyΒ  love it. We have this habit of eating curd rice at the end of lunch/dinner and i am no fan of it and try to avoid eating it whenever possible. But if it is served with chicken curry then i would like to eat it as the main dish itself πŸ™‚ The cold curd rice mixed with hot chicken curry, i feel it is a wonderful combination and it tastes absolutely yummy.

Now tell me how many of you have such weird tastes? Anyone loves the above mentioned food combination or dislikes chocolates like me?

    Same pinch mystery i am not a fan of chocolates,my kids are happy for that.Sometimes i eat but that too fruit and nut
    Same pinch Saritha…Finally i could find at least one person with the same tastes..
    The dislike for chocolates is like a boon for people around us as they get to eat all our chocolates..I guess that is the reason your kids Love this taste of yours

    Not a fan of ice creams,but prefer butterscotch
    Only Vanilla please πŸ™‚
    Again same pinch i love eating non-veg curry and egg with curd rice.Infact i love to eat even fruit with curd rice specially banana and mango.
    I dislike banana. Mangoes with curd rice is yet another wonderful combination
    I hate to drink milk.And to give my daughter i filter milk so that cream doesn’t form on the top as u do.
    I can manage to drink a glass of milk but even if i find a miniscule of cream i cant have it..

    You have company I don’t like chocolates either πŸ™‚ I can have nutty chocolates, but even then I’d much rather have gajar halwa or Kaju katli πŸ™‚
    Nuts.. i can have them separately, but i dont like them with chocolate or ice cream..
    I like a few other ice creams but my favorite is vanilla too πŸ™‚ I also add sugar to milk and curd but I am a vegetarian, I can say I love kadi-chawal, sambhar-idli etc, generally with a generous amount of chilli.
    We put in lots of chillis in all our dishes
    My son does all this milk straining thing! I love malai and tease him by eating it in front of him πŸ™‚
    I dont like the cream at all be it in milk or curd..

    I am not a fan of chocolates or ice cream or even cakes but then there are times when I lurve it too esp. M n Ms.
    Wow! I have many people giving me company here πŸ™‚
    I like hot rasgulla with vanilla ice cream.
    Never tried it 😐
    I don’t even remember the time when I last drank milk. My kiddo drinks it without sugar.
    I have tried without sugar once or twice but i dont like it at ll do even if i have half a spoon sugar..
    Spicy chicken, rice and curd is yum.
    Me: Yummy indeed πŸ™‚

      Oh vanilla ice cream with gajar ka halwa is to die for too πŸ™‚
      i am no fan of most of the sweets too so halwa and ice cream combination i dont think i will taste it

  10. November 6, 2009 9:24 AM

    You know I like aloo ka paratha with Aloo ki subzi or Egg bhurji and when I say this to anyone they laugh and say what weird combo this is….hehe We all have diff taste buds I guess πŸ˜€
    I guess everyone loves one or two of such combinations which majority doesnt like and hence they end up saying its weird..As you said we have different taste buds altogether
    Chocolates main I only love Perk rest all are kind of ok and Ice cream I don’t like at all…for 2 reasons a- it is made of milk & b- it is sweet πŸ˜›
    Perk.i dont like it..I can have wafer alone but wafers along with Chocolate..i dotn like the taste 😐
    I even hate Mango and get ridiculed for it!!!
    Mango hater..One more different taste

  11. November 6, 2009 1:36 PM

    Yes I know what you mean by “difference” in tastes! But thats what makes us different from the rest, nai?
    Yes nova the difference in tastes only makes us different
    For instance, I love eating my dessert along with my main course! I actually love having a bite of naan, mutter paneer, along with gulab jamun! And people find it so weird!! :O
    Desert along with Main course..No particular taste for me in this aspect πŸ™‚

  12. November 6, 2009 2:15 PM

    Ok! let me put it this way. I love chocolates and ice-creams, the vanilla flavour with loads of choco or strawberry sauce or even mixed. And all those hot n cold combinations – ice-cream with hot jilabis, hot gulab jamuns, some wonderful microwaved brownie… I like my coffee strained with no cream, milk coffee (my mom adds a little bit of instant coffee to get the colour to change) And curd rice with chicken curry is very very tasty, I love that combi…
    Welcome here Pins N Ashes.
    You listed down many combinations!

    What ppl find wierd in me rgding, I hate sour curd (i love mine to be just right and think minus the sourness), especially sour curd with parathas early in the morning for breakfast. Me eating the parathas or rotis alone bothers many of my friends.
    i don’t like the combination of curd and paranthas in the first place.. curd i generally dislike but Curd rice with chicken curry would be tasty even if the curd is sour πŸ™‚
    have a wonderful weekend with good food!
    You too enjoy the weekend Ashes πŸ™‚

  13. November 6, 2009 11:29 PM

    hey i like that combo of milk with sugar… except that i add something for flavour to it as well !

    as for chocolate part…. u forget u r talking to an unapologetic chocoholic…. careful! πŸ˜›

    but the curd rice with chicken curry…. i compeltely agree! πŸ˜€ i love it too – except that i have steamed rice made and take curd with it rather than directly curd rice! but i’ve been advised not to eat it coz its harmful…. curd and chicken have apparently opposing fatty acids or whatever in them. go figure!
    Yes Ash, they some technical stuff which i dont understand i just remember that its not good for health but then i love the combination πŸ™‚

  14. November 9, 2009 8:31 AM

    I love what you hate in this list and I HATE what you love in this list!!!!!!

    curd just about kills the taste in everything!!!!!!!!!

    I like curd rice and sambar but that is about it, I cannot stand chicken curry in curd rice!!!
    I feel curd rice and sambhar is ok but not as good as Chicken πŸ™‚

  15. November 9, 2009 10:16 AM


    I love experimenting with different flavours of ice cream!

    My fave food would be – curd rice + pickle! I can have that at any time of the day!!! πŸ˜€
    Curd rice with pickle..i eat it daily.. Only ucrd rice, i can never eat it so i have it along with some pickle
    Fresh milk with only sugar – I also love!
    Me πŸ™‚

    • November 18, 2009 10:46 AM

      Curd rice and mango pickle is my fav and the spicier the pickle it the better i love it πŸ˜€
      Me too Winnie πŸ™‚

  16. November 10, 2009 9:55 PM

    as you have said your taste seems to be different… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    me πŸ™‚
    and I always liked all the food items… from chocolate to icecreams… and from veggie to chicken… there is not a single things I hate…
    I am very messy eater and i dont eat half of the things others eat
    and me too like the combo of curd rice + chicken… if you try chicken with rasam it will also taste good… as for icecream… I love chocolate much… then butterscotch… vanilla if both of the above not available… πŸ™‚

  17. November 18, 2009 10:49 AM
