Got cabin fever? Here are some picks for eating Indian food out. In the mood to nest? Check out where to pick up a box of Indian sweets or authentic ingredients to cook up your favorite curries at home. (And while it's not exclusively Indian-food focused, World Spice Merchants by the Market is an excellent place to stock up on high-quality basics like cumin, coriander, cardamom and more that are key to the richly spiced cuisine of the subcontinent.)
Great selection of high quality spices. Often referenced by local chefs and cooking instructors as a great source. They also sometimes offer cooking demos w/their products.
Seattleites: don't want to head to the east side for your jar of lime pickle? Head north! The shop looks a little rickety from outside but great selection & good prices.
Delicious vegetarian Indian fare with a well-priced lunch buffet. A little bit of tight squeeze when busy, but worth it for the tastiness of the food. My faves: chana masala & saag paneer.
Pick up sweets or eat in. Favorite picks: Papadi Chaat (aka Indian nachos) and jalebi (a chickpea-based sweet).
Pick up spices, rice, legumes & produce all in once place for your home Indian cooking.
