May I take your order?

  1. Another great post from a great friend


    And thank you for the recipe, I’m gonna try this one.


  2. That’s a tasty thought. Its all in the presentation!


  3. I would have been different had my teachers were like this 😛


  4. R Prakash Prakash you would still have been you with a different attitude from the you now.

  5. Rajini Rao says:


    R Prakash Prakash , we could try this with dosas, yes?


  6. Absolutely Rajini Rao. Hope my wife won’t get that creative though:) Akpo Siekpe you are right.


  7. Rajini Rao why only dosa even idlys will do… for that matter even buns will do… 🙂

  8. Rajini Rao says:


    With the idlis, it would have to be post operative cut outs. They puff up and out when they cook, and that would destroy the shape. One could do this with chappatis too 🙂 In fact, many of my early attempts did look like amoebae.


  9. Excusable chappatis:) . But can’t like one looking like Australia!

  10. Rajini Rao says:


    Haha, my father used to liken my chappatis to a map of India.


  11. My son likes triangular puris:0

  12. Rajini Rao says:


    Hmm, flaky parathas are indeed triangular 🙂


  13. By this time, you might have made out, I am big foody:0


  14. The geo-symmetry of food or Continental-Culinary-Comparisons

  15. Rajini Rao says:


    Good morning and good breakfast to you too, Shinae Choi Robinson .I’ve made that recipe several times, it’s a keeper 🙂

  16. Yohan Wadia says:


    i’m hungry already !!!

  17. Rajini Rao says:


    I expect the Full Mandelbrot from you, Feisal Kamil 🙂

  18. Rajini Rao says:


    It’s a yeasty batter, neat 🙂

  19. Kunal Rohit says:


    why werent my teachers like this….?? all i got was grainy pictures n a hit if i dint remeber the names!

  20. Rajini Rao says:


    Actually, kunal rohit , you ought to blame your dad 😉

  21. Kunal Rohit says:


    if my dad did make pancakes, they would look like these, but unintentionally, tht is what happens to me whne i make ‘rotis’ :p

  22. Rajini Rao says:


    Exactly, kunal rohit , see my comment above re. Chappatis!

  23. Kunal Rohit says:


    lol Rajini Rao mine were alwys a differnet country, not tht i made them very often..


  24. How entirely creative and educational too… Rajini Rao but I know I already couldn’t make them :)))

  25. Rajini Rao says:


    Same here, Cheryl Ann MacDonald, Psy’D. . But I can eat them 🙂


  26. Yes, yes, yes me too 🙂 no problem!


  27. I would never have the guts to eat these masterpieces!

  28. Rajini Rao says:


    Fadia Lekouaghet , this may be a good thing because if you ate the Apollonian gasket, you would still be hungry 🙂

  29. Rajini Rao says:


    Only the Peano curve looks like a solid breakfast to me. By the way, who is Peano and why is his/her curve a square?

  30. Rajini Rao says:


    Very cool stuff, thanks, Feisal!! Not sure, but 11 pm is a bit late for mathematical theorems, Feisal Kamil 🙂 I’m very much a morning person!

  31. Rajini Rao says:


    D’aww, thanks for the vote on the other post, Feisal Kamil 🙂 So many terrific posters on G+..everything from humor to tech to art.

  32. Rajini Rao says:


    Oh yeah! That story! Haha, yes..I may have seen it, but I will need to recharge my cognitive powers first. Will check it out first thing in the morning, ‘night Feisal.


  33. awesome Rajini Rao
