Balti has nothing to do with Baltimore or Baltinglass, but a great deal to do with Birmingham.... Hehehe... Balti these days is rather a Brimingham Indian speciality. I'm waiting for someone to invite me to Brimigham to try some Balti

Welcome Dosth I really miss Indian community in UK. Haven't ever been there but, heard it's really great especially in London. Planning to visit there coming August. Hope i would be having great time. Are there any Punjabi Dhabas around?
Janmashtami is long way to go right? In August... Here in Paris we have a huge procession every year for about 10 kms. That's very funny lol ! watching all the french and many other Europeans dancing to Hare Krishna Bhajans
btw, where are you from in India?

But, I will be there at the cash counter. If any of your friends going to come there you can recommend them to search for GK Kosher Indian Restaurant

Lol ! Thanks my friend. Where are you from in India?
I am from Hyderabad(Andhra Pradesh) in South India. Famous for Hyderabadi Dum Briyani. hmm... Also called twin cities because it's actually two cities Hyderabad and Secunderabad seperated by Hussain Sagar lake.Hyderabad is again divided into old city and the new city. You can find ancient monuments on one side and the Hi-tech city in the new city on the other side where you can find all MNCs like Oracle, Microsoft, Siebel and what not... It's almost a mini Silicon Valley. You can't just stay idle in this city. Always lively
