Dinner tonight, and I’m delighted to report that for the second time in less than a week I was able to visit the local Indian restaurant. Four of us went out – here are our main meals – and all four thoroughly enjoyed the food.
Strange to think that it wasn’t until I was in my late 20s or early 30s before I went to an Indian restaurant here in the UK. It’s a rite of passage for many when they are much younger than I was.
I’d been spoiled by having been to India twice on business before my first UK experience, so I knew what authentic Indian food was supposed to taste like. I’ve made up for it since then though! Definitely my favourite food. Those early visits were to Gandhinagar in Gujarat state, including a weekend trip to Mandvi across the Rann of Kutch: one day I may write about those experiences.
