this is so great for getting a lil bit MULTICULTURAL!!

being multicultural is so important these days, what with all the new people coming over here.

Well, as far as indian food goes, my favorite would have to be good ol’ corn, or “maize” as they once called it.

I like to eat the “maize” raw–it’s extra sweet that way, so long as you don’t mind getting corn juice on your face!!!
don’t worry! it’ll keep the BBQ sauce company!!!

meetmohit88: Shouldn’t that be Rice Krispies instead of puffed rice?
