I loved the wee dude in the downstairs bit (we got takeaway). He let me nab loads of cherry lollipops and had some braw banter.

It's brilliant!

When I go to a new curry house, I usually get a Bhindi Bhaji as its a good measure of how much care a place takes when making stuff. A good Bhindi Bhaji = a good curry house.

Fun Fact! Okra is also known as ladies' fingers, for some reason.

I can't cook a decent curry either. It comes out tasty, but something's missing. I don't think I get the level of spices right, even though I follow recipes very carefully. Maybe I'll buy some different spices when I'm in Toronto next.

I was very annoyed when my uncle (who is Indian) tried cooking a curry for the first time ever. He'd never cooked anything other than toast. It was fucking amazing. What a bastard.

I am waiting for my boy to turn up and I have made us egg and lentil curry for tea. It does taste rather good. I am rather pleased with myself. My curries are normally a bit average

It's a richly flavoured curry made with potatoes and copious quantities of chilli. And, um, some other stuff. It is wicked hot and can leave you short of breath and suffering from palpitations. It's great. You should have some.

I like the sound of that. Sadly, I live in a town without an Indian restaurant. I can go to two near campus for lunch, but they've got limited menus during the day.

I'm going to remember that next time I'm at a proper curry place.

I love Lake Worth though. The pier's being rebuilt and everything.

I can have curry when I travel.

A mate of mine used to have that with cauliflower as well. The Nazrul used to call it Cauliflower Himalaya. Cauliflower Pompei would have been more appropriate.

Vindaloo bah! Have a nice phal instead. ;o)

Okay you had better not. There was a restaurant in Brick Lane which made you sign a waiver before you ate it! I have tried it once and that was enough for me - Madras is my limit these days. Anyone else eaten one?

I think I will make a curry tonight.

There was a program on the telly about currys on Wednesday.

I think I missed the Birmingham one but they covered the north - Bradford (they mentioned the Kashmir which has to be one of the best curry houses ever) and went up to Newcastle (Has anyone tried that Curry Hell challenge that's always in Viz? It just sounds painful) and ended in Glasgow. I'd always been told that the Tikka Musala was a Leeds invention but it turns out it's from Glasgow. So are Pakoras!

there's no way pakoras were invented in glasgow! unless they were invented there hundreds of years ago and then brought over to india.

i'm totally having pakoras the next time i'm in glasgow though. i've heard rumours that it's the pakora capital of the u.k.

You see, that's what I've been told although a quick scout of the internet doesn't confirm it. Hmmm. Glasgow does have pretty ace Pakoras although.

There's a place in Birmingham called The Pakora Shop which is absolutely immense, although it's a bit of a misnomer because they sell jalebi too.

I don't think it will ever be possible to find evidence for either of these claims. Indian restaurant dishes tend to spread rapidly because the restaurateurs copy each others' menus, staff move from one restaurant to another and customers ask in one restaurant for a dish they've had in another.

Pakora certainly wasn't invented in Glasgow, although it is unbelievably popular there. But you can now get haggis pakora which is surely something which could only have been invented in Glasgow.

I had a phaal at our leaving do in Birmingham, just before we moved up north (soft revolution was present at this occasion and can testify to this). It was surprisingly easy actually. But by that point I'd eaten vindaloos that were so hot that they gave me tunnel vision and revealed to me the face of God. In retrospect this night was probably the high water mark of my adventures in hallucinogenically hot curries. I still enjoy the odd vindaloo but it's harder to get a decent one here.
