Wow! Has it ever occurred to you that you could open up a restaurant in London? "Curry" didn't become the Brits' national dish for nothing! And, Sir Noon didn't get his knighthood for nothing -- they love Indian food. Before you know it, you'll be a millionaire!

As for me, the only thing I can cook is Maggi noodles -- that too, the damn thing takes me over 10 minutes instead of two! So I'll be a regular here. Cheers!
