You cannot eat Indian food. Even if the dish you get doesn't contain something you're allergic to in it, it's probably contaminated. And anaphalaxis is not fun. (I did not go into anaphalaxis last night) Indian food is no longer an option. Except at Diva, if you stick to bread and appatizers or their lamb curry. Other lamb curry not so safe. Other place's naan is. Remember this.
What is it in Indian food that you're allergic to?
I'm allergic to Cashews, Pistachio's and Mango's (Tree Nuts)
I have also had reactions to Indian foods that (supposedly) don't contain these things.
I think you are right in that there's general cross-contamination. My guess is that these places use enough nuts that the powder is in the air and gets into things even with the best of care. Indian food prepared in a kitchen that wasn't nut-infested should be OK, right?
awww :hugs: It's never fun to find out you can't eat stuff.
I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be eating as much seafood as I do but I LOVE SALMON. So I do it anyway.
well, I intend to learn to REALLY cook lamb curry for her, without the bits wot make her die.
'cause that's what best friends do
I've always wanted to have a 'cooking' party. Ro's got this awesome awesome Indian cookbook that we never get around to using. I think cooking is more fun with friends.
cooking is mostly more fun with friends. I tend to glare vigorously at people if they're standing in the kitchen when I cook, unless they're well out of the way AND helping. really helping, not
Agreement. As someone who used to help out with SCA feasts where we had teams of people trying to prepair a feast for 100 or so, being in the kitchen means you're actually doing someting dammit. If you were stupid enough not to get out of the way, whomever was Master or Mistress of the Kitchen, would grab you and saddle you with the most vile or boring of kitchen tasks.
I hate it when the brain can't remember what the body can't have.
...If it's any consolation/commiseration, I can't have a bunch of indian food-- including mango lassis, which just ruins everything. (Yogurt.)
But, yes: don't make yourself sick/die. Indian food isn't that good.
