"Kuchch mirchi ke binaa hai (Do you have anything without chillies?)" I asked the eatery I was ordering home delivery from.
"Haan ji, daal fry (Yes, daal fry)," said the guy.
"Theek hai, woh bhej dena, lekin usme ghee ya teil nahin hona chahiye (Fine, send it. Just make sure there is no ghee or oil in it)."
"Madam, aapko daal fry chahiye, na (Madam you want daal fry, isn't it)?"
"Tau fry kisme hoga (Then what will it be fried in)?"
