    As a true Brit,I can say that driving at night, you know that as soon as you hit the next village, you will see an Indian restaurant or take-out, and you could always walk into a pub and order a curry.

    What is goor exactly and how is it different from brown sugar?

    I've never even heard of sugar being used in Indian cooking. I think it's kind of a secret ingredient that you can just use a touch of in almost any savoury dish.

    sashawk: What is goor exactly and how is it different from brown sugar?

    Goor means Jaggery. Both Jaggery and brown sugar are derivatives of sugar cane. However, Jaggery is obtained much prior to the refining process than brown sugar. Therefore it does not resemble sugar at all. These links will help you:
