Dosas come in many variations like Chili Cheese and Ghee. These fun meals aren’t a food for the faint of heart. Share this crispy, chewy bread with friends and take turns tearing, pulling and dipping into the distinctly flavorful sauces. Annapurna also offers rice and curry based dishes like biryani and chana masala. Their biryani uses different spices than northern Indian cooking and is prepared dum style, explained the manager, Mahesh. He feels Annapurna Grill is fulfilling a need to bring southern Indian food to Pasadena – to remind people of home as well as introduce them to new flavors. The Chicken Biryani is one of his personal favorites and features marinated chicken, colorful, spiced basmati rice, hard boiled eggs and purple onions. Don’t skimp on dessert. After a flavorful meal, try a refreshing Rasmalai. This sweet dessert is made of cheese dumplings, with a texture like paneer, in chilled creamy milk sauce. This light, sweet dessert is reminiscent of melted ice cream and has hints of rose plus a topping of pistachios.

There are others who have no moral objections but have concerns around issues like having access to ultrasound to safely date a pregnancy and blood testing facilities for rhesus issues.”Despite polls showing that eight in ten GPs don’t want to personally provide services, “there are plenty of GPs in Limerick who will provide a service or be happy to refer patients on to family planning services. No GP is going to say to any woman in crisis ‘you’re on your own”.Dr Kerin, whose practice is with the busy Treaty Medical centre in the city, himself wrote to Minister Harris in advance of the Referendum vote, asking him to meet with GP representatives to discuss the issues.“It was very disappointing that he didn’t do that. GPs were completely sidelined. There was no question of trying to influence the outcome of the vote. It simply made practical sense for us to talk to the Minister about the issues in advance. But we do welcome the decision to allow GPs opt-in, Dr Kerin said.“But it’s a huge issue that there isn’t a functional relationship between GPs and the Department of Health.Dr Kerin said that he is confident that services will now be provided by doctors whose hands will no longer be tied by constitutional ban on abortion.“We had an EGM after the vote and had advice from a member of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. It became clear that abortion is a specialist service.“And from a pragmatic point of view, polls show that around 80 per cent of GPs don’t want to provide this service for various reasons but they are happy to refer patients on and women can also self-refer to a clinic”.Read more health news here.
