My only warning is this; Southern Indian food involves a lot of chillies but they have mastered them in a way that the heat reaches a plateau that is surprising but not mouth blistering and the payoff is that you get these wonderful endorphin rushes that continue after the meal leaving the backs of the thighs tingling in pure pleasure.
The explanation of the order of eating the dishes - I wish I had known about years ago.
I have tried them on numerous people to universal appreciation
and low fat too so long as you go easy on the coconut
