Return to Cooking

One of the challenges of exploring Indian cooking and foods is knowing where to go to buy your supplies!  Los Angeles is a huge city and it can sometimes feel like you’re looking for a “needle in a haystack,” or in this case some decent cardamom or asafoetida!

Below you’ll find some of my favorite places to shop for ingredients and kitchen supplies.  Of course, this list reflects my current personal experiences and preferences. I am still discovering and exploring new resources all the time. If there are places that you’ve discovered that are your own favorites, please comment and share them!
