Who am I ?? - Revealed!!

I asked you to guess and you, wonderful folks came up with answers of almost all kinds - drumsticks to mushrooms!..:D... and here is folks.. the RIGHT ANSWER!!

Before that.. let me give a small gist of who all guessed it right!!

...On the whole, there were some correct answers by - First by,Dhivya, who 'personally' emailed me
the answer,

Dhivya said:

"Fried Capsicum / Fried Brinjal....Fried Brinjal in some curry sauce more so ...:D"

then its Sia who commented as:

"its capsicum or eggplant :)"

and finally, Ranji said:

"looks like some kind of manchurian...eggplant??".
No dear, its not a manchurian!!..:)

...But the bingo answer was by Anuzi, who correctly guessed at one shot!

"I think it maybe Egg plant. I can't imagine what else it could be. But I am extremely curious."

Great Job buddy!!..

...Saswati for close enough, by calling it a Chinese dish! Yes, it is one!!..:)

...and the correct answer is...............'Fried Eggplant dipped in Garlic Sauce!'

I was surprised when the waiter got this for me. I actually asked him -

" I am sorry! I think you got me a wrong dish!".

But, he was like -

"No madam! It is Eggplant with Garlic Sauce!"...;)

I must say, it tasted incredibly tasty and for 7 bucks he gave so much, that I had to get some as a takeout!. Hmmmm, cool huh?
In a nutshell, it was a lovely candle light evening for us with some yummy Chinese food on the table!...:D

Hope you all enjoied playing this Guessing Game as much as I did!

Thanks all for you participation and May you all have a lovely week ahead!



  1. I was so FAR off the mark, wasn't I????

  2. See i told you i was very bad at guessing...never even thought of eggplant or capsicum and the colour of the dish made me think it was chinese:)

  3. that was fun Siri, the seeds in the pic made it little easy to guess;)

  4. I would never have guessed it as eggplant!

  5. well very hard to think that its eggplant u will hv to luk closely,,

  6. I did think it was a chinese dish :-)

  7. eggplant?!?!?! phew!! I would never have been able to guess it anyways.... Goos to hear u had a nice time!

  8. HOORAY! I WON SOMETHING! Aww yea all those years of hanging in my moms kitchen and eating her food before it hit the serving plate paid off! I recently went to a veg chinese place in jersey city and we ordered an eggplant dish that looked similar to the pic...hence the guess work. YAYYYYY! I love these games keep them coming :o)

  10. Had fun participating in the guessing game!! Eggplant? -- see I told ya, I make fool of myself in these guessing games!!:-)

  11. Ahhh! at last I 'won' something! seriously! Given any situation I would usually do a v good job, but name it a 'contest' , 'challenge' and you can be damn sure I would do my level best to make a mess of it *unintentionally* of course :-D
