“True friends chop the onions and cry together”
Jokes apart, let me talk about the food habits of some people, that I have come across as they enjoy their food. (Indian Subcontinent).
I am not talking about table manners but the style of eating.
✔One category enjoyed eating each food item separately (as shown in the image below) without much mixing or crushing or smashing.
✔Another category of people enjoys the food by mashing all the food items together
Eating food items separately
Many enjoy eating varieties of food separately but mixing the items when required without mashing the same.
Mashing all those separate food items into a pulp
Eating food items by smashing, crushing or mashing and thus mixing all the items into a single pulp and enjoying the food in bits. (Indians call this version a Khichdi) as shown in the image below.
These people say that this is a combined taste of all the food items that taste better than eating separately.
Those who favour this type of eating say that they just experience the Heavenly taste.
“When I eat, I have to chop up everything on the plate and stir it all together. It devastates my mom. Everyone at the table is like, ‘That looks like cat vomit.’ And I stir my Coke with a spoon until it’s flat” Margot Robbie
Do you like this type of food?
I am not sure what exactly constitutes style of eating under food etiquette and who decides?
What these people argue is that everybody is busy chopping…
Chef/butcher chopping the vegetables/meat, tree feller chopping the trees, woodcutter chopping the wood, or hairdresser trimming the hair, gardener enjoying chop chop…if you allow them they go on doing without hesitation.
Maybe chefs and connoisseurs among the readers can guide me to understand better
