I've so missed your grazing and lazing series! Welcome back and thank you for reminding me of how wonderful the Indian food in England is. I spent a term at Oxford when I was an undergraduate; that was my first "discovery" of the palate-wowing Indian cuisine. I still remember the "treat" to Chor Bizarre on Albemarle St. (across from Brown's Hotel). The food must've made quite an impression b/c I later married an Indian man and my in-laws make terrific samosas, parathas, and curries.
Thanks for the memories and I look forward to your subsequent postings!
