    Do you like to eat hot meal most of the time?

    I have seen some people like to eat always a hot meal. They will sit for their meal and the woman in the house will serve just cooked chapatti. If they want to eat rice, it will as hot as possible. Even if we carry our lunch box, we try to make it hot before eating. I have seen at the food stall, some people will ask for hot snacks that just got cooked.

    I do not like to eat hot food, I can't taste it. I feel the taste will come when the food gets a little warm and not too hot. I never mind eating less warm food. How about you, do you like to eat hot food items or do you like a little warm?

    I prefer moderately hot food. Very hot food will never give us its correct taste. Our tongue will feel that hotness only but not the taste. At the same time, cold food will lose its taste. Especially items like chapatis and rice will not be liked by many people when they are cold.
    Initially, in our house, we never used to eat curries and chutneys that are stored in the refrigerator. Our housemakers used to make fresh every day. But slowly there is a change. Now we are eating curries and chutneys stored in the refrigerator. We keep it outside for just 10 to 15 minutes before we eat so that the items will get the room temperature.
    Even today rice and chapati will be made in our house just before we eat. Generally, we eat rice in the afternoons and chapatis in the nights.

    always confident

    For South Indian Tamil people the hot meals are the most favorite because we prepare rice, sambar curry and rasam and all these must be taken as hot and that would be tastier and also the digestion would be perfect. Normally the meals are served even in the hotels and that is the reason being so we prepare the rice as the last item so that it can be served hot. Many people does not like eating rice when it is cold or little warm and that is the reason people prefer to carry the snacks items as tiffin for the lunch at office otherwise they would order hot meals from the canteen. Even at night we prepare items like Idli, Dosa, Chapati or Puri and all served hot and when all the family members are present the items would be prepared so that it can be served hot. Puri become cold within minutes and cannot be eaten as it become as rubber and that is not liked.

    Hot meals are good for health. Moderately hot food is preferred by all. But, what we prefer, we may not get all the time. As I have lived in hostel, as paying guest, etc. for many years, I can manage with cold food, but I can't tolerate stale food. But, nowadays, thanks to my wife, I generally get hot food.

    Hot foods have their own aroma and specific flavour of spices when it is hot. Many people like to relish the hot food. Some people can manage with hot as well as warm food but not the cold one. I have seen some people even taking cold meals and maybe they are habitual of taking that for a long time and have developed the taste like that.
    I am habitual of taking food from warm to hot and cannot relish cold one. For that the microwave in our homes comes as a handy device for heating the food quickly and it taste like the fresh one. I have noted one thing that if the food is highly spicy and chilly then it is better to take that warm and if it is not then we can take the hot food easily.

    Refrigerator has changed the scenario of Indian kitchens and dining rooms. Nowadays, working couples prepare curries for 2-3 days and store the same in their fridge. Many prepare rotis or rice fresh each day, but gradually, that trend is diminishing. Frozen food, including frozen rotis and frozen biryani, is available in the market nowadays.

    It is said that in the US, the family system disintegrated only because of outsourcing kitchens to restaurants. The generation habitual of eating freshly prepared warm food is now giving way to the frozen and stored food culture.

    We have a cook, but she comes, prepares food, and returns. By the time we eat, a phulka becomes roti.
