CONTEST: Guess the food pictured!

Given the holiday season, I'm giving away surprise gifts to the first three of you who correctly guess the food in the picture. The only hint I will give you is that it is homemade.

Please post your answer along with your email address by 6pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, December 6th. I'll notify the winners that evening by email and also post on the blog.

Good luck - I'm dying to see what everyone guesses!

My guess is something sweet with mangoes. Is it melted mango icecream/kulfi? Looks like it is topped with some nuts, hmm..yep, pistachios.

Or ravioli in some sort of curried sauce/sweet sauce?

Are you laughing?...:)

You have to give us atleast one more hint, Lulu. Is it sweet or savory? You mentioned holiday season so it must be a sweet, right?

hi indira,

i would love to say if it's sweet or savory but i think it will make it just a bit less fun :)

great answers all ..don't want to give too much away by commenting on them.

thanks to you and everyone else for playing along thus far. it's fun for me and hope it's fun to watch for you as well.

stay tuned!

Looks like homemade mango icecream/kulfi and the green bits look like pistachios.

Blogger Faffer said...

Actually, it looks too smooth to be kulfi. Could be mango shrikhand!

my attempts:

1. if sweet it is,rasamalai or mango sauce with some fruit hidden

2. if savory, it can be: Kadi ( coz has that color, but going by the picture dont know if it can be served just like that in a plate :))

i dropped by from Indira's blog

Hmm..egg, cheese, dorito chips or some triangular chips, corn and peas.., fritaataa-like, I give up..

I'd be surprised if it's not a dessert. Doesn't look like it has some spices and condiments. So my guesses are:
1. Shrikhand
2. Mango kulfi/icecream-topped-with-Mango-or-custard
3. Fruit salad with custard topping

Mango Kulfi :)

Ok...Just to be different... cheddar cheese dip..U must be lol..

6:58 PM  
Blogger gs said...

guacamole dip?

10:08 PM  
Blogger Nish said...

its yellow!!!
So, either mango rasmalai or some kadhi with pakodis...
but i think maybe mango rasmaali - it would be a very scary kadhi, and i cant see any tej-patta if it was a savory

2:35 AM  
Blogger Garam Masala said...

Ok, let me take a stab at this too..

most definitely sweet... some form of rabdi/rabri? mango rasmalai?

Whatever it is, looks delicious :-)

I should have checked the rest of the blogs before I posted. I did get a hint with everybody else repeatedly thinking it is rasmalai, mango this and that. But I looked at the picture carefully million times ( anything to procrastinate from work), look at how the edge farther away in the plate lifts up, it definitely looks like omelete of some sort, at least a cheese-bake of some up again :)

Thodarumm, what are you talking about? Cheese bake in that yellow colour, really? you think that the homecook got creative and added a dab (or more) of turmeric to the cheese?:):)

4:31 PM  
Blogger thodarumm said...

Hi Indira,

Don't we all like to dump turmeric in everything..I add it to upma, mor kuzhambu etc..and I cannot be the only one who is lazy to find a spoon and just drizzle some in ( and oops.a whole load falls and yikes..tastes not so good). But don't you think it looks like omelette..I know too yellow for that too..:)

4:45 PM  
Anonymous Indira said...

Yep, turmeric brings beauty, sometimes annoyance too.
Maybe that is a small, very falt, mini samosa that kind you make with wonton wraps in a curry sauce? how is that sounds?:)
I really should go and do something? I don't know why but I am hanging around here toomuch, that yellow colour is doing something to my brain.:)

very flat...that is.

It is a fruit custard with yellow yellow color added in it.

so nice to see many of you having a lot of fun with this! don't worry, your curiosity will be satiated this evening..

Lulu - two guesses from My Dhaba.

1. Adarsh, our taste tester, says, "no doubt dad, it is ice cream." :-) I am modifying that to homemade vanilla bean ice cream.

2. Shrikhand comes to my mind when I look at it.

Can't wait anymore!

9:42 AM  
Blogger vkn said...

Hmmm two more guesses from My Dhaba; it could also be Kesar Saffron Falooda or caramel/egg custard tart :-)
