    That sounds like a wonderful meal! You do seem to have been very lucky in your driver – and in the culinary skills of your driver’s family 🙂

    I had the notion that most Indians are vegetarian. It seems not be true.

    That’s right. Restaurants here advertise “veg and non-veg” to indicate they serve meat. A number of my colleagues here are observant vegetarians, but overall I’d say they are about 1/3rd or less of the local population. This also varies region to region in India — I believe in the south the proportion of people who eat only veg is greater.
