Indians! Food odor.

My mother in-law lives in a high-rise apartment. It was discovered by the Tata Indians 2 years ago and is now 80%. The nicest people you'd ever want to meet, but the food! The smells are, lets say, unique to the western sense of things.
Her apartment is ventilated with forced air. Are there contraptions we can put on the registers (carbon filters...) that could get rid of the smell. Forget free standing units... once this smell is in, it rules.

The Lone Ranger never complained about Tonto. Lewis & Clark had no problems, nor did the Pilgrims. Why is your MIL complaining about cooking corn or a turkey?
What? Oh, not the same? Never mind.

I was wondering what tribe? Cherokee? Hopi? Probably not a Mohican.
If he's talking about folks from India, don't the eat a lot of lamb. Lamb tends to stink when being cooked.

It's not the lamb, it's the curry. Curry with lots of fenugreek stinks to high heaven, and it sticks wherever it lands. The worst is the cheap curry used by Sri Lankans. I know exactly what the OP means, and the only cure is to move to different premises.

=========== Somebody in an apt building I used to live in regularly cooked something that to me smelled a lot like week-old roadkill, I wonder if this is the smell you all are talking about? Lingered on in the hallways for at least a day afterward. I guess it must've been edible since they lived to cook the stuff again. Or maybe they had a pet buzzard. Anyway, from the scent of the spices I sorta guessed it was Indian cooking - which I never before had any problem with. At least, I've never been to an Indian restaurant and been offered anything that smelled like a damn dead dog.

Isn't it the Mohawks that like high-rise? I'm not sure.

My wife is a Realtor. She had a house to sell that had been lived in by Indians (the Country). It took a couple of months of airing out, but the smell did subside.
