    Ah thank you Sri sir for this enlightening information.
    I always also have wondered why this snack (snake? :)) was named after the pagodas - the temples in Japan/China.

    @kkrish and @shyamala1234 Some friends like to eat when they come to my house and tell what they like. One friend always likes to have dosa with milagapodi and has taken podi home too. But one friend once in a while only comes but never has anything , feel bad about it. Some are very good in making others eat when we go to their house.

    We can serve only boiled vegetables to such people with a pinch of salt. And of course hot water. We would enjoy fried things in our meeting.
    Keyword is moderation.
    Quinoa is the latest fad. My cousin visited from California recently. He was telling that he and his wife ate quinoa daily substituting rice. Their protein levels in blood increased alarmingly and it took a couple of months to get it to normal level!!!! Use it sparingly doctor told them. I am nervous of new experiments. Better to eat what we are eating from childhood.

    Any experiment in kitchen good but not with one’s stomach. When mechanics of the body altered the biorhythm gets distorted! Better be on the side of moderation. Any adventure with food seems tobe sound and good if one is within age ranging from twenty to thirty five or forty.
    Thanks and Regards.
    God bless the gastronomical!

    @Adharv
    My dear Adhav
    When I saw the abundance of smileys in your response, I too started laughing remembering an old Chandrababu song 'sirippu varudhu sirippu varudhu'
    Thank you for your jolly response!
    Sri

    i agree it is too difficult to now invite guests for lunch or dinner, why even my MIL keeps on changing her tastes, sumtimes tea with no sugar, then half tea spoon of sugar, nowadays it is one tablet of sugarfree, sumtimes it is half tablet of sugarfree ( dont ask me how i manage to break that miniscule tablet into two o_O), now one entire spoonful of sugar, no fried things, only boiled vegggies & latest: going without salt altogether, she tried for two weeks maybe & is now back to eating normal sabzi with normal salt (thank god):BangHead:

    i myself have been thin for all my life, though in the last one year i have rounded off my angles :laughing: & after a few nasty comments from people on how i was eating so much & getting fat , i have started exercising. not that it has shifted my weight, but yes, i feel more energetic.
    that said, i recently had viral fever & cudnt eat anything for almost 10 days & still the weight refused to budge:weary::BangHead: not even 200g I lost :confounded:
    me & my well endowed friend were recently luking at her wedding pics with both of us reed thin & the comment that came out simultaneously was: our husbands are taking gud care of us :grimacing:
    so eat well dears , motto in life shud be: healthy, happy, dead !!!

    @gorgeous23
    I wish you had given your real name while signing off your post. If I call you 'gorgeous', people will start laughing holding their sides! 'Look at this old man!' they'll say after completing their laughing!
    If you had not given that caution, I would have certainly asked you that question. I have tried to do that in the past and the tablets slipped from my fingers to take shelter under the cot. With the result, I would consume only about 40 tablets out of the 100 pack!
    All are thin at least once in their lifetime but they start putting on weight at some stage of their life. There may be slight variation about when exactly the add-on starts taking place. But let me tell you this from my own experience that younger people tend to take fatter old people more into confidence than the wiry old people. I am sure you understand what I am driving at!:biggrin:
    Please don't think that I am mobilizing membership for the Fatso Club. We are already over-booked!

    you can call me gorgeous, i wont mind :roflmao:
    as for breaking the tablet, it has now been developed into a fine art bcoz MIL would send back the cup ( she somehow recognizes if I put 3/4 tablet or even 1/4 tablet), talk about fine tastes :laughing:

    I find it difficult to spell gorgeous. So I copy and paste it! Instead I can call you 'gg'
    I still go gaga over gigi! An Americal musical of 1950s. A great movie!
