Least Favourite Vegetable.

bittergourd

Jim in his blog Personal Reflections suddenly went off course and blogged about the least favourite vegetables people come up with.

For me as I am sure will be with most Indians, it was a no brainer. It is what we call the Bitter Gourd. I had commented thus: “Why? In my childhood, I was forced to eat it regularly for its medicinal properties!”

For those who are interested in the medicinal properties, here is a link to an article on it.

The vegetable can be made to look very attractive though!

  1. tripe! Revolting…childhood dish…think Mother may have cooked in some type of milk mixture…Dad loved it – I DID NOT…I doubt I could face it even today; not that I eat much meat

  2. anything from cucumber family give me back case of “problems” although personally I do not have a beef with them πŸ™‚

    oops “beef” not as in meat but more reason like as in “nice” awful” “hate” “maybe” πŸ™‚

  3. I have had something similar – not sure what it is called as I was very young but otherwise I love vegetables. Cannot really think of one I dislike as anyone with any skill in the kitchen can make things generally taste very good. I do have issues with stuff like tofu though – texture wise and taste wise (or lack thereof)

      1. There’s a little kitchen tool here- about the size of a small pencil. It has a handle, and all kinds slits and hooks and phlanges, and can be used to make roses out of radishes, and goldfish out of carrots. you get the picture. So far, I have been give 11 of them as presents. They have their own special spot in my what is this for drawer. And since I limit myself to raisin smileys on peanut butter, the day will not come when… actually, I just had a vision of everyone at my funeral lining up to put radish rose makers on the coffin lid instead of roses. And as to tofu…just smash it in a blender with blueberries, shackman. instant lunch. and with this crowd, add a couple of shots of rum, pineapple, and coconut. Instant supper.

        1. Some years ago when it mattered, I had gone that route and invested in such gadgets to make attractive looking salads and melons. I lost all interest after the need passed away and now simply chop! I am not much of a tofu fan but am not averse to it. I use home made cottage cheese instead and love it.

  4. I think my favorite part of this post is the responses. Glad you fixed the traffic problem – you need to keep your fans!
