That would explain why I've never had a panoramic like that in a restaurant
Although I will say that Indian food names, much like their food itself, is way more regional than you can tell from the handful of restaurants in my area. I'm pretty sure the person who told me they were called pakoras were from a different area than the caterers at that wedding.
That wedding, by the way, was one of the coolest cultural experiences I've ever had. The bride is Irish Catholic and the groom is Indian. The day started with a Catholic ceremony, followed by a buffet of Indian food in the church's basement prepared by the groom's family, followed by a traditional Hindi ceremony (they had a leaflet explaining the ceremony for each guest and repeated everything in English). Then there were Indian passed hors d'oeuvres, and a mix of Indian and typical American food at the various stations for dinner. Everything felt very inclusive, and I had some great conversations with many Indian guests who freely shared their culture and traditions.
