I am sure such food is available neither in Heaven nor in Hell. I guess the food in Heaven would be be stuff without oil, salt or spices and consequently tasteless and bland, what I find the European /Western food to be.
Whereas the food in Hell would be burning hot -so spicy that it would burn the tongue permanently, oily with excess of salt and chillies and thus totally inedible.
Bottom Line: Indian cuisine is the best not only on planet earth but is also better that food served in Heaven and Hell.

I love tasty Indian food.
But I hate to pay for the uniforms of the waiters serving the food or the expensive crockery in which it is served or the plush carpet under the feet, or the expensive dim lights, or the stylish furniture or neatly washed costly napkins - in all what the hoity-toity call 'ambience'. And, and where at the end of the meal, one has to pay over Rs.100 as tip.
I go after the basics. The food should be tasty, good to look at and affordable.
And this is what I discovered last week in New Delhi's fancy Khan Market.
The fixed menu was dal and saag paneer, The dishes were watery but very tasty. And the rotis- believe me some of the best I have had in my life. A dollop of nutralite 'butter' for those who cant do without the real thing.
The venue- under a big tree, on the low wall where the cars go for repairs, near the temple in Khan Market. The clientele- auto repairmen, auto drivers and those working in Khan Market shops.
The price? Yes, the price....I paid Rs.40/- for this thali with three chappatis.
And would I love to go there again? Yes...Anytime, Any day.
