I Asked For It

Alcohol Meat Fish Eggs Eggplant Tomatoes Raw mangoes Raw mango pickle Bananas Guavas Chickoos Custard Apples Jackfruit Any fruit with milk Sour yoghurt Raw onion Raw onion in sour yoghurt Peas Corn Gram or gram flour Cauliflower Cabbage Capsicum Shrikhand (a dessert made from flavoured, fermented yoghurt) Anything with sugar syrup (including jalebis and gulab jamuns) Fried stuff like papads or pakoras Too much salt Ice-cream at night

May God give me the strength to eat what little isn’t on that list. Amen.
