Cheat Well, Eat Well

by Team Intern

I’m pretty daring when it comes to food. Well, maybe not daring, but adventurous. Okay, maybe ‘open-minded’ is the term. I love trying new things, but, let’s face it, I love it even more when I know a bit about what I’m biting into.

Luckily, the evil mad scientists over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have come to the aid of suspicious foodies–at least when they’re dining South Indian. Introducing the PDF equivalent of a magic Indian decoder ring : the free (ding ding ding), printable cheat-sheet translates all of the main ingredients of South Indian cuisine into comfy, grocery store terms (ex: Dal, Channa, and Saag=Lentils, Chickpeas, and Spinach), and gives the gist of popular dishes. Plus, the card is designed to fold down into a convenient wallet-compatible size, so you can cheat with subtlety.

So far, the South Indian decoder is the first and only version of the cheat-sheet, but the website is eager to add to the menu. Read all about it (and download one for yourself!) here , and dine with confidence!
