Dosa in top 10

New York, July 8 (PTI)
: The masala dosa has made it to a list of “10 foods to try before you die”, compiled by the Huffington Post. Put together by travel blog viator for the newspaper, the list also includes the Peking duck from China, BBQ ribs from the US and teppanyaki from Japan.

“The paper-thin pancake is made from rice and lentils, cooked to lacy perfection on a hot griddle. What creates the more-ish flavor is a spiced concoction of mashed cooked potatoes and fried onions, served with a liberal dose of garlicky chutney,” the website says of the masala dosa.

Escargots from France, Moussaka from Greece and Zucchini flowers from Italy are some of the other dishes that make the cut.

mm mm mmmm@peking duck. there's a place near my house that makes the perfect peking duck - crispy skin, succulent flesh and they make the perfect duck soup using the bones after you've eaten the meat.

Thanks Mr. HK!

I can be coerced into trying various foods, with some exceptions. Have an adventurous family and extended famil(ies)- when it comes to food..esp. non veg..they will try almost anything! I enjoy cooking, but draw the line when it comes to the "unusual-strange" (for us!) *Speaking exceptions..can't bring myself to try Escargots!

mine is 2/10.

moussaka
dosa

For moussaka, I had to see the pic and remember that I have eaten it. Am bad with names.

on food topic:
Had goat masala y'day. Totally grossed my friend out as I relished a decent sized piece of cartilage, after being delighted to discover it of course. I feared vomit after I tried to offer it with, 'oh try it, it's good', so I had to put it away. But it was too good to give up, so picked it up again as the waiter was picking up the plates, and finished it, but covered it with another hand. Did get a comment later, '.... a brahmin woman eating meat like that...'. Rolling Eyes

How many here who like to gnaw/munch on the cartilage? How many get grossed out?

Tracy,

You are a brahmin? Did not know that! And I know many brahmin women who love non-veg foods- gobble and can munch way better than I can:)

Seriously, it depends on the mood. But, I do like to see people absolutely enjoy their food in informal settings- with family and friends- relish every bit of it in a natural way! Almost child-like..the simple pleasures of life!

Oh I love cartilage*. Any time I'm at a Portuguese restaurant, I look for their marinated / smoked pigs ears, which is all cartilage.

* As is common to all new converts to non-vegetarianism -- per Vee Unkil's wisdom.

Oh why didn't I think of paya soup?? A couple of weeks back, while it was pouring outside, I began an absolutely decadent lunch with paya soup. Cartilagenous manna which hit the spot. The lunch lasted over three full hours and included pork sorpotel and many other items which I now forget what with all those bottles of lawnmower beer downed. But yes, paya soup is a great choice for cartilage fans.

Pigs are especially not safe from me. Happily for them, most restaurants in Mumbai don't offer pork (for fear of offending Muslims), which is why I'm happiest when I'm traveling in the Far East. The Chinese really know how to cook pig. Just recalling my last meal of roast pig -- ooh that crispy skin, perfectly browned -- is making me salivate (and lunch time is still a good couple of hours away).

Vee unkil deduced from my enthusiastic descriptions of my largely non-vegetarian meals that I'm a recent convert to non-vegetarianism and that it is only neo-converts who brag about their new found religion. Unmasked thusly by that master-deducer, I was forced to reveal my real name (Jignes Patel) and how I'm the black sheep in my 100% vegetarian Gujarati (joint) family.
