Wonderful. This YetiBlog is DoubleBill. Am totally glued. Its a fascinating rediscovery of india through your eyes. Thanks.

@Sam: Coming to desserts, may I suggest the green chilli or the garlic icecreams? I've had them in Ahmedabad and Surat, so somewhere in Mumbai you could explore these Indian desserts as well

You had Malai Kulfi with Gulab Jamuns. It was wonderful. Heiss und Eis.

Sir, those are interesting to you. Because you have already eaten every kind of dessert in India. Now picture a lass who has never had rabdi, kulfi, rassagulla, cassata, malai chap, rajbhog, kesar pista halwa, sheera, gajar ka halwa, kaju katli, laddoo, pista roll...

Are you getting my drift? lol

What? That is the first time in my life I heard that something like this even exists! Isn't ice cream supposed to taste sweet? I cannot imagine how this would taste like.

That's only North India yet, and Cassata is Italian, or so I always thought! Makes me hungry...

You are going to wear a Saree next time? I must warn you, I have no idea how it's done. And you know there are no ladies in my home. I used to see my mum wear one, but that was years ago.

And I promise you, it's not easy. Not easy at all.

Still - should be a lot of fun. Maybe you can wear one to a great Indian wedding. Now which TBHPian is having a great Indian wedding? Please invite us.

Come to Kerala, I'm sure there will be many Mallu TBHPians' Wives (Err, you got the idea!) who would be more than happy to be of assistance.
