My all-all-all-time favourite Indian (or maybe Bangladeshi) restaurant is the unassuming vegetarian Diwana Bhel Poori at 121-123 Drummond Street, Euston. Everything I've tried has been fabulous but you must promise me to try the Bhel Poori starter if you go.

I think I've been there, is it the one that does the huge thin rolled bread type things and puffed up fried bread things?

Isn't that a masala dosa?

Bhel poori is more like Indian trail mix, with yoghurt ladled over it, as I recall anyway.

Oh yeah, that's the big rolled up thing.

I think the puffed up thing is poori.

I had mini puffed up things last year, stuffed with a filling, served balanced on a shot glass and in the glass was a spicy chilled 'soup'. That was fun.

No-one seems to give a fig about dates. How about Carry on Regardless?

I know, I know. I have had a bit of an issue with the VB club and have stopped doing the sessions. But rather irritatingly I agreed to referee a Sussex League match on that evening. Now if I could find a replacement referee?...
