Having worked as a waiter for awhile in an Indian restaurant in Delaware i must say The head chef was a Punjabi named Mr Singh, so of course he used meat too (Northern Indian vrs Southern vegetarian). Those were a summer of amazing meals.

Over the weekend, I made a pilgrimage with my family to the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple, located at the top of a mountain near Tirupati. It's considered one of the holiest sites for Hindus and pilgrims throng there in the tens of thousands daily to queue in long lines for darshan, getting sight of the holy deity. And after darshan, comes the parsadam, the offering that has been blessed by the deity, which is a huge ladoo at Tirumala. The temple has been there at least for 1,500 years and its rich history is depicted in a nearby museum.
