Two South Asian customers filed a federal lawsuit Monday against Baluchi's Indian restaurant - for tip discrimination.
Abe Shah and Hemang Virani say they were discriminated against by being compelled to pay an 18% tip at a Queens branch of the well-known Indian restaurant.
They also say they were punched and spit at when they argued with employees of the Queens Boulevard eatery.
"They were openly discriminated against and then physically attacked for objecting to the restaurant's illegal discrimination," says the lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court for unspecified damages.
The brouhaha started after the pair questioned why the 18% was automatically added to their bill and not to other customers' checks.
A man identifying himself as a manager admitted "a policy of automatically including a gratuity on the bills if Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi customers because 'they never tip,'" according to the lawsuit.
The argument eventually escalated, and employees used "racial slurs" against the pair, punched Shah in the face and then shoved Virani into Shah, the suit charges.
Shah had a bruise and high blood pressure and Virani had bruised shoulders, according to the lawsuit.
A manager at the restaurant declined to comment. Calls to corporate officers were not returned.

I'm trying to make a good brownie 'in a jar' type recipe for handicap cooks.This basically means about 2 easy ingredients to add to a jar full of the dry ingredients. The problem is, the brownies are coming out bland and cake-like. Gross. It's also supposed to be single serving, baked in a mini loaf pan. Can you handle all this edge? This is the recipe I'm using:
1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Then all you have to do is empty contents of jar into bowl, mix with an egg and 1/4 a cup of butter and bake for about 20 minutes at about tree fiddy.
Does anyone have an idea to make them more fudgy? Or at least less cakey. But if anyone needs a single serve cake recipe the above is great, it's just not a brownie.
Oh I'm not a nut person so I substituted the pecans for about 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips, that was the single saving grace of this bland thing.
If anyone else has a good recipe to try up this ally that'd also be appreciated.

Alright /ck/, I have a mission. I need to brew an alchololic drink. But it won't be any old drink! My mission is to brew a drink with the 'essense' of Salvia. If you don't know what that is here's a link:
The reason for my quest to brew said drink is not just SCIENCE, though that is a major reason but because, as an elegan/tg/entleman, I need to validate parts of my settings.
Please /ck/, you're my only hope!
