Please educate me regarding Indian cuisine

llbcsbiggs | Jun 28, 2006 01:15 AM

Hi all,
I was raised by parents who dry a roast out in my honor when I come home. My husband was raised by very traditional Chinese parents. We are both now free wheeling foodies, but somehow our education has never included Indian cuisine. We will be in London in a couple of weeks and figure it is a good city for that education. We have copied your recs for Indian restaurants. However, we know that if a non-food-educated person goes into Chinese restaurant, he/she wouldn't know what the yummy food is. In fact, the first proper question, wouldn't even be asked - what type of Chinese cuisine are we talking about? We assume that an Indian restaurant would be similar. So, can you please educate us so that we can educate our palates? What are the different types of Indian cuisine and what are the yummy insider dishes for each area? We can do spicy (really).
Thanks,
Shannon
