The question of whether to use Hindu or Hindoo in writing about the Raj
has come up in another list.  Someone quoted Hindoo Salad, "from the Fanny
Farmer cookbook," as an example of the spelling.  The salad is:

4 slices tomato on a bed of shredded lettuce.  On two of the slices, pile
shaved celery, on the other two, finely cut watercress.  Garnish with
small pieces of tomato shaped with circular cutter and serve with French

There is some question as to what or how this has to do with
"Hindoo."  Barry, any clues?  Something to think about while you're
walking around the block!
