Cloved Laddus!

Now I am a typical South Indian fella with South Indian habits and tastes. But when it comes to laddu's and pani puri, I absolutely love the way the northies prepare the dishes.

For one, give me any boondhi laddu from any northie sweet shop and I'll finish it within 8 seconds flat. But then there are these yucky south indian laddu's that are often mistaken for their northern counterparts.

Laddu's are from north india and are meant to be from there. Why, you ask? Well, cause we south indians cant make laddu's for nuts. Like for instance, a north indian laddu is just a shit load of boondhi and ghee with a dash of cashew nuts and thats about it. A south indian laddu on the other hand has shit loads of boondhi, DALDA and cloves. I mean what the fuck are cloves doing in a laddu. Its like some sadistic bastard who wanted to spoil the taste of them laddu's suddenly thought of putting it there and that ritual has caught on until this day.

I cant stand them cloves in my laddus. They piss me off. Its like I put the whole laddu in my mouth and then bite into a clove and hate the taste cause its yuck and I have to try and seperate it from the rest of the laddu inside my mouth with my tongue and then remove it out with my fingers and throw it away. Instead, why the fuck cant they all just let them north indians make the laddus just the way I love them?

But no.. the sadistic bastard hates me!!

Yuk !! the last paragraph was a little too much info, but then the reason I felt so disgusted is cuz its happened to me too ... actually i bet everyone has gone thru that, where they bite into something real yummy and suddenly their face changes when they realise there is something else there that they didnt expect.

Dude, pluck out the cloves before popping the whole laddu into your mouth.

and plural of laddu is laddus
not laddu's.

:P hehe.

Oh, mother of all pissers:

You're drinking yummy yummy Watermelon juice, and it suddenly turns disgusting.

Those mother fuckers crushed the seeds also..

Dr. Pissed said...

Dude, I blog at 2:00 in the morning and change the time to reflect otherwise.
You dont expect me to get my punctuation marks right do you?

Dr. Pissed said...

And dude, I'd have to dig into the laddu thereby spoiling its shape to find the fucking cloves

Not happening..

Just find them northie laddus and put them in your mouth..

When your happy and you know it clap your hands ..

Finch, Scout said...

Tell me you didn't come up with that maa ki kirkiri ad?


they even massacred the poor song!

btw, you can reshape a laddoo.


Dr. Pissed said...

What Maa Ki Kirkiri ad?
I have no fucking clue what your talking about. But the ad sure sounds interesting. I want to watch it now..

Moreover, its the crappy copywriters in ad agencies that send us scripts that we have to adhere to and film. Very little creative work. But then again, there are clients like Titan and a few others that come to us directly and we go all out to please them, usually with the ads turning out to be far better than the rest of the agency copies that we recieve.

You'll know soon enough!
AND I DO HAVE VERIFICATION .. "askkr" for this post

Dr. Pissed said...

And in any case, if your reffering to the last line that I had typed in my comment earlier, thats just a song that I was taught in school and I've always kept singing it whenever I've been happy, with actions et al.

Maybe one of them ad agency fuckers saw me doing my thing on my way back home one day and got inspired or something..

according to our traditional ayurvedic books one clove in a laddu will help in digestion and it is good antioxidant for the amount of ghee consumed.
