What does a vamp do? In many cases, nothing. She is a just bad omen in our Indian T.V series. The poor seldom succeeds in harming the coward, meek and fragile protagonist of the serial. Then, why we all disapprove of vamps? The reason is simple. We hate them but we love them indeed. Similarly, some of the Indian food ingredients are no less than a vamp. We are good hypocrites in pretending to avoid them on many occasions but we wholeheartedly savor their flavors at the same time.
You never knew these ingredients are the vamps of Indian culinary
Onions – The prohibited sin in the Navratri days. But think about your vegetable rolls, is there any better replacement for onions? Butter chicken and Kadhai Paneer wouldn’t be the same again in their absence.
Garlic – As our grandparents have emphasized – consumption of garlic encourages us to commit seven sins. But, the sharp flavor of this bulb is almost impossible to avoid. This food itself is enough to flavor the bread and bewitch the world with its taste.
Chilies – When a person ends a fast or a holy ritual, relishing spicy food becomes almost a vice. Nevertheless, be it the tangy South Indian gravies or happening North Indian curries, even Einstein can’t make them flavorful without using chilies.
Non-veg and eggs – No wonder how many reasons your vegetarian pals list to avoid nonveg! Any non-vegetarian loves hitting a Tandoori chicken or Mutton gravy. On the other hand, the eggetarians are bound to water their tongues for eggs after a heavy work out. In fact, Non-veg and eggs are a synonym to good food, the majority of the reader would give a thumbs up to it.
Some occasions expect us to refrain from these lip-smacking foods. But, who is not tempted to relish them!
