Because I am a great big geek who is getting tired of doing time conversions in his head, I present you with conversion tables from Eastern Standard Time to Indian Standard Time and Eastern Daylight Time to Indian Standard Time.

NB: The hazards of bachellor life -- lesson #402: all rice is not created equal. Leftover Basmati rice from the local Indian joint (mmmm, Basmati rice!) is probably not the best match for the leftover turkey divan from your mom. The spicey clovey goodness of the former conflicts somewhat sharply with the cheesey goodness of the latter. But, it's still dinner.

The other day I had almond cake for dinner.

May the Gods keep and protect fools, small children, ships named 'Enterprise', and those in Bachelor Living.

Hmmmmmmmmmm....how was that dinner from the local Indian joint? We're thinking about being lazy and doing takeout for New Year's Eve, and our friends are strict vegetarians. As you know, we were a bit disappointed with the last time, so I'd appreciate your most up-to-date food critique. Thank you!

It was great! We had Boti Kebab and Channa Pindi, both of which were excellent. The Navrattan Kourma is another veggie dish they do very well. We've done takeout from Ambassador for NYE... :-)

OOOh....what is Channa Pindi?! Navrattan Kourma is one of our favorites too (in addition to Bangan Bharta (sp?))

Channa is chickpeas in a suace ... my mother in-law makes a version which has more tomato in it than Ambassador's. Ambassodor's has a bit more fire in it. I love both but for different reasons.

This is from ashacat's 2003 trip to north India -- she and her Hindi teacher stopped at this road-side stall for breakfast (in Dehra Dun, IIRC). The food was a cup of hot channa with freshly fried flat-bread. Not a poori, but fried in a wok. She said that it was something like 105°F and here they were wolfing down this hot channa and hot bread -- for breakfast!

105 degrees in the morning and that guy isn't even sweating!
