What weird food combinations work for you?!

I slave over the stove trying to make the perfect vermicille rice, i was craving a meal of vermicille rice and KDD low fat yoghurt… 2 hours later my rice is done, steaming and fluffy… Butoote asks if it’s ready and i say yes…

I then find the dish above… apparently my dear husband believes that adding green grapes to vermicille rice and topping it with yoghurt is the culinary delight (NOT)!!! Why would he do that WHY! He ruined my perfectly fine rice! He swears by this combination though there is no way on earth i would have it!

Would you try that combination? Do you have any weird food combinations that disgusts others but works perfectly for you?

  2. http://ansam518.wordpress.com/2010/06/19/random-thought-31/ <— It didnt disgust many!

    I also like: http://ansam518.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/can-you-guess-the-sandwich/ and I do add caramelized popcorn to it too 😛

    Yogurt with za3taar

    Pineapple and artichoke pizza

    Beetroot and apples in mixed leaf salad

    Mango + Salt + daqqoos bu deech (or Tabasco)

    Avocado mixed with tahini or hummos as a spread

    Honey on scrambled eggs (or maple syrup)

    McDonalds fries with their sweet chili sauce

    French fries sprinkled with vinegar, sea salt, pepper mix (and paprika) hmmmm thats normal I guess!!! Not so strange 😛

    Sea salt or salt on some fruit like apples, watermelon, mango 😛

    Pizza crust (the very end that many people throw away) dipped in honey… which is AWESOME! Basically it has the flavors leftovers barely touching it and the honey just adds to it

    Orange juice with parsley and topped with shreds of green apples

    Oreos and peanut butter (I avoid it cuz its loaded with calories :-()

    OK OK! I can go on and on and on… .so I better stop gabel matraj3eeen! I can imagine you going YA3 YA3 YA3 – Estaghfarallaah at some of my choices so yeah I will stop now 😛

      You do have some weird combinations i admit… but not all of them are weird :p well the popcorn one is weird a bit but it’s like eating cornflakes (the one with the bee? the puffed corn thing?) … i know of some people who eat their cornflakes with black tea instead of milk :S

      I loooove el pizza crust! I would never throw it away! How do people depart with it is beyond me!

      The only thing on your list that made me go y3 y3 y3 is the mango salt daqqos bu deech !!! ewwww :`(

  3. I always loved a sweet and sour combination of foods…
    Like Marag simach & Muhamar rice (sugar rice)
    sweet and sour chicken or hamour
    Tunisain chicken with honey and apricots
    rosted leg of lamb with prunes and honey…
    Peanut butter and jelly…
    on occaisions when I eat rice I like my 7ashou with raisns…
    But in the end it is annoying when you’re slaving over the stove to make the perfect dish and the men come and add something and ruins the whole thing…. I stopped making pasta sauce from scratch and use bottled ones ’cause hubby puts ketchup in his… I still remember that day vividly 10 years ago… I was so furious!!! I guess we do forgive but we don’t forget ;p

      Not so weird though… i usually like salt and sweet together like salted caramel truffles or chocolate popcorn with salt …

      KETCHUP! KETCHUP why ketchup! WHY!

      I know exactly how you feel… it hurts!

    yes i would definitely try that combination but without the grapes hehe, two of my best combinations are:

    – white rice with marag 3adas and ketchup
    – cheese omlet with caramalized balsamic vinegar.

    yummy 😉

      The cheese omelet with the balsamic doesn’t sound too weird… maybe a bit too sour? :p

  13. well yes, i would go for it and try. I’m everything about trying weird things lol.

    from my side, i’m used to many weird combinations, as follows:
    – harees (made with la7am not chicken) + murg smach, just the murgah not the fish.
    – balalee6 with jam
    – gur9 with jam
    – 5bz rgag weya samn w shkar
    – peanut butter sandwich with bananas
    – celery with peanut butter

    ne ways that’s all i can remember for now, but there are many others.

      Really? I don’t think it’s an old q8y thing per say maybe it’s more of a family thing… especially that everyone seem to see it for the first time :S

      Allah yr7mah insha2 Allah 😦 I am sorry if i made you sad!

      How do u do it y3ni? You provide grapes o yoghurt on the lunch table next to rice? What about maraq?

        laa bel 3aks I am not sad , its nice to remember him , well , at lunch time bel zwaraa they would have regular food e.g. machboos deyaay and next to the salad , marag , harees , and tamr , etc they would always always have grapes !! and they would minx the grapes with the food just like your husband and eat it , maybe it’s the same concept as kishmish in the 7ashoo 😛
