A picture is worth a thousand calories

I was actually on the verge of an eye-roll when I saw that the one female superhero had a skimpy costume - but then I read that her character is supposed to be combating "Eve-teasing", which sounds kind of like slut-shaming. So now I'm wondering if the costume was kind of....intentional?

"Breakfast snack"? That is some hardcore snacking, worthy of hobbits.

Eve-teasing is like slut-shaming, cat-calling, and rape culture combined. And turned up to 11.

It's a euphemism for public sexual harassment.

Fair enough, but my point was that maybe my fretting about the costume on a superhero who is ostensibly trying to protect the right of a woman to wear whatever the hell she wants, and who is asserting that a woman's appearance doesn't give a guy license to do anything to or at her, may have been a little clumsy on my part.

Laddoo Boy doesn't even need to throw those things at me, just the sight of them makes my blood glucose level shoot to around 10000 mg/dl. Possibly the worst dessert I've ever encountered.

Come on, it is not that bad. Especially the butter laden ones from the Temple at Tirupati.

If you are talking calorie bombs, you cannot go wrong with Rasmalai. If you are looking for just straight sugar rush, Gajar Halwa is your friend.

Desserts from India are really different from the ones we are used to in the US. If you consume the same quantity of it like we do here, you WILL get a heart attack!

Can I tell you that the mere sight of the red French fry container is enough to send me into a pavlovian tizzy. So instead of having a healthy salad for lunch - I am going to jam delicious McD's French fries into my gullet - so thanks a lot BBC India!!

Grew up in an Indian household in N. America and whenever I brought these types of snacks to school or other Western functions, the most common response:

"OMG! This is amazing but how can you eat more than a bite, it's so sweet!"

Used to make s'mozas ahead and freeze them for my kids. They still like them.

Freezers full of homemade samosas ready to bake/fry are the best.
