Indian meals

When we visited India last summer, we were all a little worried that my kids were a bit too Americano, in that they hardly ate any good Desi food for a couple of days. Since India - Madras anyway - now had pasta and pasta sauces in most grocery stores, they certainly didn't starve. I caught some flak for this behavior even though I insisted that they were perfectly well balanced Americans of Indian origin (with eating habits to match!) Well, last night I was thoroughly vindicated. The kids ate rice, chicken curry, cabbage and yogurt dinners. They even volunteered to try the spicy pickle - Dad was ecstatic (though he didn't go that far!)
