No, I meant the implication that there's no rice in Indian food.

The rice is one of my favorite parts of Indian food.

another Basmati user here--  I used to make the long grain but I now much prefer the narrow, split-grain of basmati

Chinese, although my favourite dishes in Chinese restaurants have an Indonesian name (and probably background): babi pangang, bami goreng. Maybe a Dutch (/ Belgian) thing, because Indonesia is a former Dutch colony? Most of Chinese restaurants in Holland are Chin. / Ind. anyway (Chinese / Indian, the latter being meant as Indonesian (East-Indies)).
 
I also like Ku Lu Yuk a lot, or whatever you call it in English.

Indian, I think. Or could it be Chinese? I voted for Indian to get the poll back into balance!

Naaah, the most of the dishes you find in "chinese" restaurants are simply not chinese... and I'm hungry two hours after eating chinese
 
Indian is probably the proggiest cuisine in terms od spices, so it wins hands down.

Chinese by a small margin. Personally, I love Merkanized Chinese food.

Chinese. Though I would like to try more Indian cuisine, what I've had is pretty good.

Indian for me every time - I do like Chinese food (double cooked kung po pork is my favorite, there), but there's just something about the variety of flavours & spicing in Indian food which just gets those taste buds going 10 to the dozen.

Hot & sour Dhansak chicken, basmati rice with cloves, a good dhal + a couple of chapatis on the side... what could be better, eh?

Aha - appears my vote for Indian food has again squared the poll.

Indian food. A good lamb masala with onion kulcha, samosas and rice biryani is heaven.
