I ONCE met an Indian who had never had a poppadom until he came to Britain.
The other week I met a lot of Indians who had never started a meal with pops and pickle tray in their lives.
On a trip to Kerala, in India's south west, my press party settled down in a local restaurant. They took an awful lot of persuading to serve up pops and pickles at the start of the meal.
The waiters all came and watched us. We may have started a trend.
