Samosas are not exactly South Indian.
OK - so what are they? I need to know where specifically to visit if I ever go to India.
Has you any of you tried Hyderabadi Biryani(Hyderabad being a place in South India)
I thought it was spelled Cyberabad.
I've had biryani (good, but not significantly better on average than many other things whose names I've forgotten). No idea if it was Hyderabadi or not. It's a mixed blessing that most Indian restaurants serve buffet-style lunch. It enables me to pick out good food by sight, without bothering to learn its name or regional origin. I'll try to pay better attention in the future.

Looks like this is turning into a discussion of Indian food
Anyways While we are at it Hyderabadi biriyani aka "Dum Ka Biriyani" is made in a special way.. I am not very sure how they make it.. But it tastes quite a lot different than the other kinds.. And as someone hailing from Hyderabad i think that IS THE Biriyani... (Drooling )
I have'nt seen any indian restaurant in the LA area previously or more recently in Atlanta area serving it.. There is one in Dallas that serves Biriyani close to "Dum ka Biriyani" but somehow its not quite the same thing.. :roll:
More Drooling

It is North indian snacke.
Have you ever tasted Rassugulla?
It is a sweet dish.
I thought it was spelled Cyberabad.
I did not know that its that famous
I wish could offer you Tangdi Kabab with scotch whiskey.


Though right now I am in SI, but still I think I can arrange your lodging in NI also.
Be my guest whenever you plan to come to India.
Let me have the pleasure of being your host in India.

Does this apply only for the people outside India or anybody(I mean Indian too)?

This makes me think. American English now is international language.
How about putting the United Nations in charge to specify next version of American English grammar.
Great plan. What do u think?

Sure - let 'em; it will keep the UN entertained. And it's not as though the new standard would actually be enforced or anything...
