Lately I've been noticing that some people are dissing ketchup. So, as protector of the tomato wonder, I decided to take matters into my own hands and let the world know that KETCHUP IS GOD.
There is no better seasoning than ketchup, and if you think otherwise, I feel bad for your taste buds. You really need to 'catch up' with this genius culinary invention.
What's not to love? It's sweet and tangy at the same time. Even the blandest of food tastes 1000 times better when you add ketchup to it and you still want to hate on it? Shame on you!
Also, who made the rules about what to eat with ketchup and what not to? Is there a book? There isn't. So, stop with your looks when I squeeze the heavenly richness of the red sauce all over my pizza slice. Deal with it.
Ketchup has the ability to make other sauces taste better too and if that's not a culinary super power, I don't know what is.
Yeah I agree it can get messy at times but isn't the fact that your taste buds were blessed with the tastiest of inventions worth it all? Your fries aren't meant to be eaten dry and sans the goodness of ketchup. If you're doing it any other way, you're missing out on so much.
They say adults lose their taste of ketchup as we grow up. But the only thing I can gather from that is that certain people just become plain boring as they grow up and if they don't like ketchup anymore, they don't know what the word delicious stands for.
Once during my hostel days, I was shamed for adding ketchup to my poha. My roommate was from Indore and lectured me about how I'm ruining 'her' dish. Well, I have something to say to you Sharmila -- your paper food becomes tolerable when I add ketchup to it.
And to those who say shit like, "Haven't your taste buds evolved over the years?", I have a thing or two to say. My taste buds have evolved, thank you very much. But that doesn't mean I can't relish the taste of something I love on something that you might find odd.
Ketchup's been my saviour during horrible times when the hostel mess served food that didn't even look like food. You're lying if you claim to never use a sachet or two during your college days to make your food edible.
Ek toh mera muh, mera pet, main jo marzi khaaun. So, the next time you wanna make a face when I dip my idlis into ketchup, remember that I couldn't care less.
