I think I'm allergic to the spices in Indian food. I've noticed that I always end up with a lot of air in my stomach, indigestion and a really uncomfortable feeling everytime I've eaten Indian. I've been told that drinking "rasam", the sour soup that accompanies most Indian meals, or chewing on cardomom pods after the meal would help digest the food. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on me. I think I'd better stay away Indian for a while as much as I love their papadum!
