anonymous n00b sockpuppet account: I'm pretty sure this is what favorites are for.

You are mistaken.

Anyway, it's always fun when someone drops science on MetaFilter. Thanks for pointing it out hadjiboy. Though I was a bit confused; you make it sound like cydonian made the fpp but he didn't—it was you.

Yeah, take that sucker!

One day someone will post about the obscure, niche interest that I have and I'll be able to swoop majestically in, filling the thread with nuggets of fascinating trivia. It's merely a matter of waiting for that long awaited FPP about pizza making and/or low quality bluegrass music to come by.

Until then, I wait. I watch and I wait.

This is a much classier way to call our attention to something good than OMG PLEASE SIDEBAR THIS. Thanks for setting a good example, hadjiboy.

How singularly civil; not a nasty word - that I can translate anyway. Thanks to both for a model of mannerly discussion.

Stuff like the Jofus / ericb exchange above is why I keep crawling back to the grey. Excellent work.

Yeh, great stuff from the cydonian, altho i'm not totally convinced by the reductionist theory on the significance of the sandalwood paste.

I am also frustrated beyond belief by parts of the wiki article on Hyderabad, such as:

Hyderabadi cuisine is a blend of heavy Mughal influences, traditional Andhra and Telangana cuisine [...]

The most famous dish of Hyderabad is Hyderabadi Biryani. Other culinary delights include Khurbani ka Mitha, Pheni (a sweet vermicelli delicacy eaten during the festival of Diwali), Paya and Haleem (a meat dish traditionally eaten by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan).

Indian Mithai (sweet) shops are famous for their ghee sweets. Pulla Reddy Sweets are famous for their "Pure Ghee" sweets. Karachi Bakery located near Mau'zzam Jahi Market, Nampally, is popular for its fruitbiscuits including the local Osmania biscuits and also the Dil Khush. A family residing in Azeez Bagh palace in the old part of the city is famous for the preparation of Badaam Ki jaali (Almond lattice confection).
