Drowning in ketchup
My older daughter eats everything with ketchup and by everything, I really mean everything!!
Her food is first drowned in tomato ketchup and only then can she begin eating it. Now I can understand burgers, french fries, kebabs etc being eaten with a little ketchup, but most of our desi cuisine does not go well with the tomato sauce and I can only watch in horror or exasperation as she upends the bottle of Heinz or Knorr ketchup and swirl it over lentils, meatballs curry or a vegetable dish.
I personally think ketchup overwhelms the flavors of the dish and all you can taste is ketchup but my daughter carries sachets to school and elsewhere as well so when it is snack time, she can liberally spread the sauce all over the food.
Culturally, we use many condiments like raita, chutneys, pickle etc with our food. Do you like food drowned under an avalanche of condiments or do you prefer the original flavors of the food?
