Chicken, in any form(should be cooked J). I just love it .Fried ,curried,baked…whatever ! I just don’t mind ….. My roommate at NIT Calicut,Mayuri Bhate who is also a very good friend of mine used to stare with disbelief when she would see me gobbling up chicken pieces one after the other. Greeshma, another friend,even recorded a video of me gobbling down chicken and my friends used to laugh at it so much that I used to feel ashamed of myself. But, that never stopped me from eating chicken!
