Leibster’s eleven

ZM from My Cooking Adventures and Techie2Mom tagged me along with a bunch of awesome bloggers here to answer few questions, also awarding us the Leibster award. Ever enthusiastic and always ready to help, she was the one who cleared all my doubts related to microwave baking( I am never gonna leave bugging you though :mrgreen: )

( 1 ) What do you cook when suddenly some guests appear at your doorstep?
Open fridge.

Is the dosa batter box in there? Yes. Does it have enough batter? Yes. Make dosa and coconut chutney.

No batter or not enough to feed all?

Close fridge.

Check the potato basket. Does it have potatoes? Yes. Make aloo parathas.

No potatoes? Make tea and make rava kesari.

(2) How do you like to celebrate your birthday?
Get surprises all day long.

(3)Your favorite book?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

(4) What are the qualities that you admire the most in people?
Humorous. Open-minded. I especially like the ones who bring life into the gathering or party.

(5) How did you meet your spouse?
Technically, I heard him first. That happened due to a phone call.

(6) Do you plan for future? If yes, then what do you see yourself doing in after 20 years.
My plans for next week only don’t materialize and you are asking the scene after 20 years!!

(7) What do you like the most about yourself?
I like two things the most – first is my will power, second is I always see the good out of bad.

(8) What do you like the most about your spouse?
Again two things here  – his way to manage any kind of crisis and a calm and practical solution to what-the-hell-do-I-do-now kind of situation. Second is his humor quotient.

(9) Would you like to change something about your life? If yes, then what’s it.
I wish I had the experience of living in a hostel.

(10) Do you easily get angry or are you one of those saints? Whats your trick to keeping a calm mind
Oh I am the grandmother of all the peaceful saints. I always see myself in the shoes of the person trying to make me angry. And seeing the opposite person’s point of view makes me realise how much he/she needs a head massage and a good sleep actually.

(11) what is your favourite comfort food?
Steaming hot rice, dal tadka and aloo fry or bhindi masala(whichever is available, if neither – mango pickle).



Dear ZM, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this year’s first interrogation :mrgreen: 😈

  1. My plans for next week only don’t materialize
    I like two things the most – first is my will power,

    Contradiction?? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  2. Aah!! The saintly Visha!!!! Vaise I also try to see the good things of a bad situation but as fasr as anger is concerned!! Well I don’t get angry easily but when I do…….

    Vaise why am I trying to answer ques asked for you? I mean I am also tagged by T2M so I am technically doing double work!!! My bad!! πŸ˜›

  3. :/ So you are not young angry lady types- Anger sits on my nose and eyes always πŸ˜€ , and….. No need to stay in a hostel, you get homesick :p

    • A wink suits your eye, not an anger ka tadka πŸ™‚
      Read lots of hostel horror stories, just want to get a feel of it – guess nothing can be done now πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. Ooh congies πŸ™‚ you are such a lovely person Visha πŸ™‚

    I never stock on dosa batter and hence I can only dole out set doses given my practice. πŸ˜‰

    And the two things you like about yourself are exactly what I like about you too and it shows in your posts and resolutions! Wait, I will continue my comment after finishing up that mango thokku (drool) πŸ˜‰

    • set dosas and set doses—play of words or am I being stupid in understanding it πŸ™„ :mrgreen:

      thank you Toffee πŸ™‚

      Blasphemy!! Mango thokku lying neglected while you are online?? πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  5. I love Aloo parathas.. should visit you next time I am in B’lore, with a bag of Aloo , just in case …… πŸ™‚ Answers to 4,5,6 & 9 sounds like me.. Except my parents, siblings and husband everyone who has met me would say am a saint πŸ™‚

  6. Hey Visha after all these witty answers, thoda sa cheating chalega, so will let you go for not doing 11 facts again πŸ˜‰
    1) Loved your true blue developer eshtyle answer!!! Now only if you could make a flow chart for that, eh?!? BTW, all these comes from a person who claims to be a novice in cooking!!! Well you are now a pro!!!
    4) Yesh, yesh i remember you telling me that!!!
    5) Yes!!! I remember reading that post of your about that smooth (or was it silky?!) voice of Zack!!
    10) Wow Visha, i mean granny of all saints!!! This is a cool trick to keep calm πŸ™‚
    11) I just made (rather mom made and i assisted) the mango pickle, want some?!?

    You are most welcome Visha!! God willing, you will be interrogated many a times this year πŸ˜‰ !!!
    It was great reading your answers!!!

    • The questions were so interesting that I forgot to look after the rest of the rules πŸ˜‰

      I thought of making a flow chart, but that spelt too much of work in the middle of a prison break πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰ Arre, did you read my earlier reply to Tharani…I made rice flour dough instead of the supposed maida dough..can I get more idiotic πŸ˜†

      Anything done with mangoes is duly accepted with utmost sincerity and returned with the choicest of blessings πŸ˜€

      Thank you for tagging me ZM πŸ™‚

  9. Nice tag πŸ™‚ The answers were awesome! Grandmother of all saints? Really? Wish I was more like you. I am like a volcano when it comes to emotions. πŸ˜›
