food..and Cuisines

$$Eat..to live..or live to eat....
I see super size portion and people dig in..with all their energy..Its very common in US....the reason could be.... people ballooning up.To this there is a sayin..."It is enough for need but not for greed"Food is somethin ,more we eat ,builds up eating capacity ..and then turns into laziness ... inability to think...A Junky brain...
I like to eat in small portions ..the reason behind it....cuisines of different culture ... but Authentic food to try of any culture needs courage...Authentic Chinese is worst of all times....all smelly with insects and worms or Japanese ..I remember invited for d
inner to a Japanese restaurant ..where the food was too smelly , I ended up leaving the place..Thai is close to Indian food ..may be one reason I like it...and relish,every dish has lots of salads and spice.....Italian is good... but pasta in most of the dishes with white sauce is kinda little difficult to eat....pizza or lasagna or spaghetti with meat balls... r good ..but I don't eat beef so... I have to stick to chicken or fish..dishes..
Another cuisine Mexican..which I can say is good.."Don Pablos" is good to some extent...for quesdilla and fajita or nachos with ground chicken..burritos or enchiladas..are delicacy
,good if made properly but this cuisine also has some flaws which I personally dont like....the black bean fillin..Taco Bell ..Mexican chain is good for its tacos and chilupas.. in USA...
Greek food.. another cuisine which is good with kaboobs and rice ..and chicken in pita bread , chicken dishes in different forms..sweet,spicy lots of peanut and nuts..added..
Mediterranean food..Its very very close to Indian food....Shwarmas (chicken rolled in pita bread with salads
)..or garlic.hummus or thinni as sauce..I personally like this food if available.. its more with Indian touch and our kind of spices..
Mongolian Kitchen also one good place ....I like where BD's chain has customised the platter.."What u choose is what you get"all kinds of uncooked pastas are in front of you ...
I like this kinda food...usually.. its
.."what you pick is what you get",with uncooked seafood and uncooked chicken or beef .. then all kinds of spices are kept,with vegetables.... pick and give it to the cook who will ,cook infront of you...costs..like $10 per person..healthy and fresh..
American cuisine..like TGi Friday..or apple bee..or Ruby Tuesday ..and many more like that.... Caters to all kind of burgers and steaks ..with authentic American breakfast ,,like pork strips and sausages with pancakes..loaded with maple syrup..
But ...but....Indian cuisine.."The Best"..lol..never get tired.. talkin of home made Indian food.. made with all fresh ingredients..its healthy!!!
...Tried all cuisines..But nothin like Indian food..
It takes to be an Indian "DISH"...

yes agreed that no dish can match our punjabi food,but i like less oily and less spicy dishes.
as mostly our punjabi dishes are very spicy and oily that is very hazardous to our helth

Harman said...

yes..but then again dharmjit I would say still indian food is considered healthiest as our spices and herbs work as magic to the human body system...its proved by research that indians are less prone to asthma or heart attacks or ny other disorders...
