(Globetrotter)...good indian chinese places...
Does such a thing exist? Â Surely you aren't referring to the Indian places which deep-batter-fry all kinds of things and call them Chinese, e.g. "Gobi Manchurian?"
well, let me put it this way, its like when you live in ohio and you grow up eating "chinese food", it might be a little different than the "chinese food" you get in manhattan or london or shanghai, right? middle class indians love "chinese food" but it is about as similar to what you would get in shanghai as what you get in ohio, just from a different angle. after eating it once a week for 3 years, it really grew on me. as there is a pretty big indian imigrant community in the greater nyc area, and they can't make "chinese food" at home, there are a half dozen resteraunts that cater to this. usually it is stuff like hakka noodles (like lo mien bit a drier sauce and spicier, with thinner noodles) lots of battered vegitables with salt and pepper, sweet and spicy chicken, no pork or beef but lots of lamb, lots of peanuts and cashews, lots of potato dishes. lots of honey and chili dishes I wouldn't go out of my way to look for it in the states (although it is all the rage with foodies now) but if you are in india I would definatly try it. I went looking cause I missed it, but my wife thought I was nuts.
