We all have some likes and dislikes about cooked vegetables and pulses etc. I would like to know which of the cooked vegetable dish you do not prefer to take, under any circumstances. Please share your views. Thanks in advance.

Vegetable dish - I love it
Actually, I like everything NOW. The same cannot be said before marriage. I was very picky then and didn't like brinjal in any form. Actually I wasn't too much of a vegetable liker (though I liked the ones that no one liked....like bitter gourd, amaranth leaves...etc). But after marriage and kids, I felt I was the best model for my kids and started eating everything...and guess what,...I started liking all of them!

So Marriage has made you more wiser...LOL!. Same is the case with me. When I was bachelor I did not like some of the cooked vegetables like bottle gourd and ash gourd etc., then my mother would cook me some other vegetable of my choice. But gradually (and after marriage), I understood that every vegetable has some kind of speciality and there are limited vegetables available in the market, so we must eat as much vegetables as possible. It is our kids, which creat trouble while consuming cooked vegetables. We are required to make so many adjustments in our vegetable and pulses menu, so as to accomodate their choice.

lol...Deepak you answered your own question. What happened when you were a bachelor and you didn't like a dish? Your mother cooked you another one which you liked! So, you took that for granted. Same happens with our kids too ....well, not mine..lol Right from the first time my kids started eating, I didn't give them a choice...either you eat it or not. Fortunately both of them are not fussy about food...till the older one found out that his friend's mothers were cooking something else when they didn't like what was cooked. lol..he was influenced by some other family. Yes, I do give treats sometimes and cook what he likes or asks for...but that's not the norm and he has to eat what I cook everyday. Hopefully his wife will not complain that I spoilt him..lol

You are very nice person who can eat most of the vegetables. Your theory is quite interestig that everything be treated as blessing of Great God, so we should accept it. Cupid,incidently I also do not liked cooked turnip. But I like the pulse which you have mentioned. Otherwise, I take most of the vegetables and pulses. Thanks for sharing!

Hi deepak, Right now I cannot really remember any particular vegetable that I do not like for I kind of eat everything that's prepared well. However, I do not like bitter gourd, pumpkin, sweet gourd, avacado...much. On the other hand, potato, brinjal, lady's finger, cabbage, cauliflower...these are my all time favorite.

Bitter Gourd, I understand, purifies our blook and if it is cooked having some stuffing in it say some boiled potatoes or soemthing like that...it becomes tasty. Pumpkin is also very nutrious...you should try and take it. Your all time favourites are my favourites too. However, we are required to make lots of adjustment in the Menu to accomodate choice of our kids. I prefer eating each and every cooked vegetable except turnip. Have a great day! :):):):)

Yeah, deepak. Vegetables are very good for health and we should concentrate more on the fibre content ones which help in digestion. They even help in neutralising the free radicals (toxic element) by the anti oxidant value in them.

I really odn't like much cooked vegetables other than corn and green beans. I would much rather eat them raw with some dip.

I can understand that capsicum is liked by many because of its pungent smell and flavour. How are you? Thanks for sharing.

Hi I don't like : 1.Lady Finger -- I like -- lambi bhari hui bhindi but that kati hui bhindi is something that I just don't like. 2. Matar -- Any vegetable that contains matar.. I like raw matar but I don't know what happens to the taste of the matar when it gets cooked .. I simply hate that taste .. doesn't mean that I don't eat it .. I do eat it but not with satisfaction. I have a habit of separating matar from the dish. 3. Brinjal -- I simply don't like it. 4. Green pulses -- I don't know what do we call them but I just don't like them. 5. Tinda -- I don't remember it's name in English .. but I just don't like it. 6. Kaddoo -- Again I don't remember it's English name .. I hate it's vegetable dish. 7. Tori -- I don't like it. 8. Lobiya -- I simply don't like it .. but I eat it -- without any satisfaction. My list is quite long and you will start thinking about me that what I eat ?? so it's better to stop here .. I am very choosy when it is about eating :)

Dear! Very very interesting and bold reply: Tumahari list of 'negative vegetables' kuchch jyada hi badi lag rahi hai mujhey......LOL!. I like both kind of bhindi...either kati hui aur bharawaan. Peas are good source of many minerals, so you should try to develop your taste for cooked peas. Try preparing sukhey 'Aloo-Matar' without termaric (haldi)..hope you would like that. Brinjal is also not my favourite. Bangan ka pakoda chalega. Kadoo, Tori, Tinda...sabhi green vegetables hai...please khyaa karo chahey thodi thodi. Ab yeh bata do tumehy kya -kya pasand hai? Taaki kabhi tumhey 'vegetarian' treat denay ka mauka aaaye to main tumhey tumarhi pasad ki dishes offer kar sakoon.....! Have a great day!

hmm what an interesting subject. I mainly like my veggies pure and raw. Cooked ones that I don't mind are cauliflower, asparagus, potatoes, brussel sprouts (yeah i know i'm weird--runs in the family) But I hate hate hate cooked carrots and anything that turns into mush. The only exception is onions. I won't eat those raw. Unless in salsa. What do u like and dislike?

I'm not very good at eating my veggies in the first place, but cooked veggies are even worse for me. Absolutly no callaflower (can't even spell it), and spinach are the two that pop into my head. Yuck.

Yup - I know I'm bad. I like corn, carrots & green beans. That's about it. Although I will be good and eat what's put in front of me at someone else's house.

Pumpkin is also very nutrious...you should try and take it. Raddish must be eaten, because its virtues and special nutrious value cannot be substituted by any vegetable. You can take it raw.

The main cooked vegetable I don't like is lima beans. I'd eat them if they were cleverly disguised in a dish, but would much prefer not to. I also don't particularly care for turnips and rutabagas. Interesting, I'm not familiar with so many of the vegetables named here. Just from describing them as bitter or pungent doesn't make them sound very appetizing! If I had more time today, I'd look them all up. whit

Though I am a vegetarian I am choosy in vegetables. But for me the way in which a vegetable has been prepared matters a lot. like,brinjal I like but only when it is oil fried. Mushrooms & cauliflowers also I like the most but again how it is prepared is important. veggies I dont like even the preperation is good would be yam, raddish etc..
