Use Google. It is your best friend.
Be grateful for rice and curry. And I totally understand. At my friend's quince practice they had guava pastries! You've got to ignore it. It's hard, but you guys'll get through it.
Glued there, to my face,
All it shows is happiness,
All it shows is fake.
Please leave your sanity in the sanity box by the door. There is no sanity allowed in this room...
THE CAREBEARS WILL JOIN WITH THE BOOHBAHS AND TELETUBBIES AND TAKE OVER THE UNIVERSE WITH MACHINE GUNS AND BRAINWASHED CHILDREN!!!!!! DUCK AND COVER!!!!
If you believe that the media is trying to brainwash our children with pointless television copy and paste this into your siggy with your name attatched. : Daughter_of_TheLight

I've met other celiacs, but never other Indian ones! well, I'm 1/2 Indian, but still.
I've gone to India once since I was diagnosed. Basically I avoided most types of bread. But some North Indians use bajra (I'm not sure what that is in English, or if I spelled it right. It's a flour that a lot of poor people in India use, so my nani thought it was funny that I was eating it). Or I've also had chapatis made of corn (I think that's a Panjabi thing). Both of those taste pretty good, but the textures aren't the best. Dosas are gluten free too, if I'm not mistaken.
Last time I went to visit, my aunt searched everywhere in Delhi for gluten free foods, but pretty much found nothing. Luckily you can eat dhal and rice and vegetables. I would also check online. If the shipping prices aren't too bad, you can get virtually anything mailed straight to you door.
Hope this helps!

we tend to use a lot of juwar and tapioca flours. i know that the roti's have juwar in them and i'm not too fond of the taste so that's why i don't like them.
if you want the recipe's, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll send them to you.
hope this helps!

Hi we're teenagers from India, our mum is Australian which is where we found out about Coeliac in June. She thought we had it for a long time but luckily we managed to eat lots of wheat until then. But now we are in north India where people eat chapatis and samosas and other delicious wheat based foods. Any other Indians out there with suggestions?
Hi, We're from India and we are gluten intolerant too,and so are our children.
But we live in South India and and since most south Indian food is rice based it's easier to have gluten-free food.Check out south Indian recipes on the net.
You can also use bajra flour,jowar flour,buckwheat flour(known as koottu ka atta in the north) and Amaranth flour(Fabindia sells it).You can blend the buckwheat and amaranth flour with some rice flour as buckwheat by itself is pretty strong flavor.
We get a lot of 'delicious wheat based food ' here too,but we have learned to resist it and now we hardly miss wheat based food,as we have learned to make very good cakes,cookies,tarts,pancakes,waffles etc with rice flour,even Bread.Try savorypalate.com for these recipes,or just substitute rice flour where wheat is needed.Just experiment.
Since your mother is Australian you could probably get excellent rice based pasta,in Australia from companies such as Orgran and others.Locally you could get Thai rice noodles glass noodles,and Japanese buckwheat noodles(called Soba noodles) from shops that sell imported food.
You can also try Sunirafoods.com,I came across them on the net yesterday.They say they sell gluten-free flours and mixes for cakes,cookies,glutenfree atta etc.
So hang in there and eventually you will get used to living without wheat based foods.It's so, much healthier,at least we think so.
