Geometric eatable

We are probably a very mathematically inclined people when it comes to food. From doling out liquids by the metre to getting that perfect circle for the chappati, it is all part of the maths that makes the world go round. So when today's theme - over at the City Daily Photo Bloggers group, that is - was announced, I figured this would be the best representation of the theme.

Of course, you could get this in two dimensions, with the circle tucked in to make a triangle of the dosa, but when you ask for a ghee roast, you have to be prepared for it to take a three-dimensional form as well. There are some who would argue that the ghee roast works best as a cylinder, but like the Little-Endians and the Big-Endians, that argument would lead to wars, but no agreement.

But whatever be the shape it takes, a ghee roast makes for a great breakfast!



Figured out the theme for the City Daily Photo Bloggers today? Head out here to find more interpretations!

This the first I've heard of that kind of food. I like your take on the theme.

Big cone.

Yes, it never occurred to me that food would come in triangles. But I have seen it here, with Indian cooking, too. Our version of the samosa is one such.

Mark R said...

Yes... I once ate a whole one. Still don't know how I did it!

That looks yum! Is the texture similar to papadum or naan? Either way, cylinder or cone, it must be nice! (I quite like Indian cooking) :)

@William: :)
@ Jim, @Mark R: It does startle you when you first see it... but it isn't too difficult to get one down
@Julie: Yes, we've got those samosas - or samsas - here as well
@ Perth DP, @Rob: Made me hungry posting it!
@Daryl, @Babzy: Thank you!
@Rosemary: Oh, no! You've missed something (and must come back for it!)
@Snapperoni: Well, no. This is a version of the dosa - rice batter fried on a hot griddle...
