Cooking Basics ~ Create Your Own Regional Feasts of India


The beauty of living in America is its diversity. Especially its food diversity. It may be the same for other countries as well. But the USA is my home so my “opinions” via my food or foodie experiences can be spoken with authority. Or at least, with a reasonable amount of certainty. :)

World cuisine can be experienced almost anywhere in the United States as there are certain to be restaurants to suit your flavor palate or perhaps to satisfy your longing for the “tastes of home”, as you may have emigrated to the States.

There was once a time when finding certain herbs and spices at your local grocery store was almost impossible. You had to shop at a specialty store. But that’s not the case these days. In most cities, you can now find them at a grocery store. But what is even better is that you can now shop online and have them delivered right to your door.

Here is an example. Do you like Indian food or have a yearning for some home cooked Indian cuisine? You will probably appreciate this product.

Shanti’s Spice Box

Use 30 Indian spices, packed in proportion to use, freshly packaged,
and create your own regional feasts of India.

Shanti’s Spice Box is designed to be used with this Indian cookbook.

Ajanta, Regional Feasts of India.

In 1993, he sold New Delhi Junction and opened Ajanta.

Doesn’t it sound wonderful?
