comment One month in India: eating tips to getting spiced-out
Well, I am back from Hyderabad and the strategy above (asking for less spicy) very much did not work. I think the baseline spice level (at least in Hyderabad) is so high that what they see as not spicy is still quite spicy for for westerners. But Lassi, raita (yougurt) and beer did help.
