My Childhood Food memories #SuperBloggerChallenge2018

I am not a foodie and I manage to eat anything if it is a veg option cooked properly with enough salt and spice. But, My mother is a great cook. She loves cooking tasty dishes, she takes time to improve the food that she cooks and presents them properly. I am just the opposite. I don't have interest in both cooking and eating.

Still, I have some good childhood memories of food. Here are some:

Gold fingers :
They are some fries with salt and spice. We used to get these packs in our school cafeteria. We used to stand in a queue to buy them in the interval and share with our friends. I used to save pocket money for this. Of course, this is a junk food but I liked them as they are spicy and crunchy.

Evening snacks :
After coming from school, our daily routine was to fresh ourselves, eat homemade snacks made my mom and rush to dance classes. My mom used to make a variety of snacks like plantain bajji (stuffed fries), wholewheat dosas, Maggie, Rava laddoo, sweet laddoo, murukku etc., My favorite was whole wheat dosa and my mom used to make 2 versions - a simple one and sweet one.

Poori :
I used to hate almost all breakfast items like idli, vada, and dosa as I am allergic to them. But, Pooris are so tasty and my all time favorite breakfast. They take some time to make, so my mom used to prepare them on weekends when we get up late enjoy Pooris with potato curry or with a gravy made with chickpea flour.

Rice items and Specific vegatables :
I almost like all rice varieties like veg pulao, tamarind rice, tomato rice etc., I like some vegetables more like ladyfingers, potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplants.

Really, those were fantastic days when we need not cook anything and just eat and enjoy a tasty meal. What were your childhood favorites and best food memories? Do share in comments.

  11. Ya. It was fun to wear on fingers and eat

  12. Ya, available but not much as earlier days. I think it got replaced with chips and kurukure

  13. Ya.. finger fries are difficult to stop eating.

    I love to eat and always thinking of my next meal even as a child lol....my favorite growing up was Rice n Beans 💕

  15. Even I won't go near fries now. Wheat dosas healthy and yummy. There is no specific recipe. Wheat flour mixed with water and salt to dosa consistency.

  16. Poori tastes best, that's why no other tiffin beats it.

  17. Even my kids like murukku and fries

  18. Rice is my favorite too..

  19. Same pinch Anupriya, I too love pancakes

    Lovely! or should i say Delicious!!! Wheat dosa sounds really good... I love all things fried but I dont think I should indulge in such delicacies.. Yummy post :-)

  23. Finger fries were our fav too. Childhood food memories are dates filled with cashews, Hot Dog with tamarind chutney and Cooker cake. Thanks for linking up with Quoted Stories.

    Hey, I remember the finger fries, too! How we used to love them as kids. We used to stuff our fingers in those fries and then chomp on them, giggling all the while.
    Yes, childhood days were fun days, when all we did was play, eat and have fun. No cooking, or meal planning...what a relief that was!
    Thank you for joining us at flacoursomeTuesdays, Mahathi!

  26. True.. no cooking and no meal planning is bliss
