I find indian food to be completely unique as ethnic food goes, in that once I start, I cannot stop eating until I am grossly overfull. Has anyone else had this experience? And, much more importantly, does anyone have any info as to the nutritional content of indian food (generally speaking), esp. the proportion of proteins to carbs to fats?"Even if one's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should be able to perform one more action with certainty."

Indian food is so tasty. Curry chicken is so good... or anything they do with eggplant.
Here's some info on Indian food:
Pappadums are very high in calories but because they are often eaten in small portions energy intake is low
Korma and Biryani dishes are some of the most fattening Indian dishes
although the fat content in naan bread is medium they are such a dense food that total calories are high
Indian foods are often cooked in Ghee - basically pure fat and high in cholesterol!
Any sauces that solidify at room temperature are high in saturated fats
Tikka dishes are usually lower in fat as the meat is cooked in a dry oven
Green Chiles used in many Indian curries are high in vitamin C
Red chili powder is high in vitamin A
