    The first time, I didn't think much of it. I was happy even, for my Indian roots and how people were promoting it.

    The second time around, I questioned the convenience of eating chewy, doughy naan and kulcha as a taco, with messy gravy getting everywhere. But that again was not my problem.

    Here's what it might be — a clever scheme to bait Mexican cuisine lovers into eating "Indian" food. Also, NAAN IS NOT TACO.

    What is so wrong with having naan and curry the old-fashioned way?

    Well, whatever is their cup of tea, I guess. But, only if they knew how naan and butter chicken is eaten.

    And also, gimme some non-fancy butter naan and butter chicken, ASAP. Without the cabbage.
