Need Help at the Indian Grocery Store?

I just stumbled across this book on Amazon and the title made me laugh out loud.

Pretty brilliant idea for a book, I’d say!

Apparently this is a guide to help you navigate an Indian grocery store and find what you need if you’ve decided to try cooking Indian food and you’re a little overwhelmed.

According to the reviewers, the indexing isn’t great and the attempts at using Devanagari script are a fail, but most agree the information itself is highly useful.

I don’t think I need this kind of help. I’m a regular at a couple of Indian grocery stores in my area.

In fact, here’s a picture from an online article of one of my favorite grocery stores, the Desi Bazaar!

If you’re looking to learn Indian cooking, by the way, this is the book I started with:

I can highly recommend it for beginners!

And I have to at least mention to classic that many westerners use to learn some Indian cooking:
