Not sure, but I like having meat in my diet, so certainly whatever Indian food I am eating is westernized to some degree.  This is the restaurant I go to for my Indian food.  Would anyone know if the food (meat aside) there is primarily northern or southern in origin? 

Like Lewis said, everything is basically northern with a heavy mughlai influence. Of course a lot of food, especially those found in restaurants, has a heavy Islamic influence.

I love Indian food, but I'm not sure which things I've had are Southern and which are Northern--can anyone give entrees for each? I think most I've been to have been Southern.

If the restaurant doesn't serve Dosa or Uthapam, it's not southern.

I'm currently sort of seeing an Indian girl. I think she's from Southern India. She's a vegatarian though so I don't know if her food preferences would be very representative.

Wow, I think that's the first time I've known a white guy who was 'seeing', even 'sort of', and Indian girl.  Do her parents know?  Or do you mean you just have a coffee with her between classes at the Starbucks? (though I would say that is already pretty shocking).

Haha. Her parents are in India so I doubt they would know anything, no.

And, no, I don't mean having a coffee either...the 'sort of' is more in reference to the fact that I already have an open relationship and she's leaving the country in a month so it's not anything serious.

South is terrible. Everything that's good is either North or British.

Britain has good food?

Almost all food that is considered "Indian" in the UK and widely eaten "to go" or major shop brought/ eaten in restaurants is an adaptation of Indian Ingredients for Anglo-Caledonian tastebuds.
As a half Indian myself I have been able to access both authentic and westernized "Balti".
My fave Indian food?
Chapati's, Naans, Pilau Rice, Chickpea curry, Jalfrezi,Spinach Saag,  Bhuna, Tiika Masala, Rogan Josh, Bhajis.
I absolutely dispise Indian sweet food.How anyone, let alone Dad, can eat those blandified sugar cubes evades me.

Astounding.  Your masculine allurements must be prodigious and overwhelming!  Well worth subsequent immolation.

I actually misread that as "almost all food is considered 'Indian' in the UK."

Huh? What are the blandified sugar cubes? In terms of Indian sweets I really like ras malai and gulab jamuns are ok. Not a fan of gajar ka halwa. I don't like rasgulas either. Not a fan of sweet foods in any case.

It's not 1950 anymore opebo! I think there have been six marriages in my family since 1995; all but one have been Indian female-white male. I've certainly never gone on a date with another Indian; the odds are simply statistically unlikely since Indian females compose like 1% of the people I interact with.

It's hardly astounding - I don't think my masculine allurements are anything to write home about. And I'm not sure what you mean by immolation either. Would that be me not buying prostitutes or something?

No, immolation means to be consumed in a fire - it is a common method in some cultures of dealing with daughterly errancies.

Oh, you meant it literally, I was trying to interpret it as a metaphor.

Beside the facts that she comes from the upper echelons of society where I think values are more progressive and that a white boy is probably way more acceptable than a too dark-skinned Indian (to Brahmins fairness is apparently very important), I think patriarchal societies usually punish the women rather than the men for such things so I don't feel too worried. Wink

EDIT: I just realized that this might have been what you meant, i.e. worth it for her even if she gets burnt up afterwards. Tongue But, yeah, that wouldn't happen either.

Yes, I was formulating a pick-up line before I travel to the sub-continent - 'hey sweet stuff, my manly allurements are so prodigious and overwhelming you won't mind the inevitable subsequent immolation'.  (don't worry, I would keep it lighthearted by working my eyebrows up and down or winking broadly - perhaps both if she looks like a 'go-er')
