Blogger Ethnic Market Tour Part the Last: Little India
The sky was growing dark as we left Holy Land Deli and walked up the street to our final destination in our Blogger Ethnic Market Tour . . .
1835 Central Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55418
While I had been in Little India before, (even way back when it was called "Patel's,") I hadn't ever really bought much there -- don't know why! They have an excellent selection of Indian frozen and dry/canned goods, but an albeit meager produce section. I guess I wouldn't go to Little India for produce, (except for fresh curry leaves,) but their other departments definitely make it worth a trip!
My purchases . . .
Basmati rice, Coconut M&Ms, (weird! I had to try them!), coconut water, black salt, frozen samosas, candy-coated fennel seeds, frozen naan, mint chutney, chickpea flour, and red lentils
WHAT an adventure! I can't believe we hit four completely different stores in one afternoon, travelling the globe just in our metro area. I also can't WAIT to use many of the new to me products I picked up! Our meals, (and consequently, my posting,) will be MUCH more interesting in the coming months. Woo!
Don't forget to check out Liz's blog to read her review of Little India, as well as all of the other places we visited.
Back to regularly-scheduled blogging tomorrow. Happy MoFo!
