I have to record this dinnertime conversation for posterity because it is very funny, very Maloo. But you need to know Telugu and Hyderabad to understand it. Any explanation will spoil the spontaneity.
Vijay asked whether Maloo knew the other Telugu name for potato.
Maloo: The other name for potato? Alu gadda?
I know...erra gadda!
We start laughing.
And Maloo says...."Sorry...erra gadda is beetroot, right?
Great logic there...we are in splits now!!
