Poor southerners (black and white) used to eat it because it was cheap, and a good source of protein. It smells and taste like old sweaty gym socks, IMHO. Not really the point it's a connection to their past, and that alone makes it worth including in the culinary catalog. Although I wouldn't eat it

I would recommend the Andhra Pradesh state, where the food is hottest.
I couldn't agree more. I love indian food. I like eating vegetarian when possible, and different curry blends go better with veggies than anything else I've ever tried. I must admit, I would have been just as ignorant as most but a friends girlfriend took us to an indian restaurant a few years ago in new york. She ordered several items off the menu, and I was hooked for life. Like the kid said try it you'll like it
