India is on my top 3 list of places to visit. I am in love with the food, culture, traditional dress, everything! I do a lot of Indian cooking and recently fell in love with the Aarti Paarti show on the Food network. She was the winner of their show, the next food tv start, or something like that. Here is her blog if you haven't heard of her: http://www.aartipaarti.com/ She is from India living in L.A. now and combines Indian and American cooking, has the bubbliest personality and is totally adorable.
Anyway, there is a Indian grocery here in town that I visit several times a month to stock up on samosas, rice, and an array of Indian spices. It's so much cheaper buying them there than at other grocery stores. Today I picked up a bag of basmatti rice from Pakistan and fell in love with the bag. It's not a plastic bag, but cloth, with a handle!
That bag in the lower right hand corner is chick pea flour. I plan on making some spicy chick pea balls with it, they are so good, kinda like little biscuits. I'll keep you posted on when I make those!
