I spent several years in India and Bangladesh and though never really warmed up to the Bangladeshi food, loved Indian food from the getgo. Back in Canada's capital city, it is not easy to find Indian groceries that carry Indian vegetables that I love (bitter gourd is a good example). There are many Indian restaurants but most twicked the recipes to appeal to NA palate. I am wondering if there are Indian foodies residing outside of India that miss the "real thing", expat foodies that wish it was readily available here, and other lovers of Indian food that are interested in sharing recipes, experiences, cookbooks, etc. Indian food is communal, there is not much pleasure of consuming it alone - please join me here to talk about it.
