Haldiram’s Mint Lachha Mint Flavour Potato Sticks

The Mint Lachha Potato sticks were new to me. I picked them up at Punjabi Deli attracted by the flavor plus the poofy bag feels like a flotation device or pillow. The weight is their standard 7.06 oz (200gms). The mint is refreshing but not overpowering. The crunch is pleasant. There is also a great […]

Bolst Curry Powder (Mild)

Bolst Curry Powder Mild (100g, 3.53 oz) I’m loyal to Bolst curry powder because honestly it was one of first spice mixes I bought as my interest in cooking grew. I’ve tried several other brands which are all collecting dust. The initial appeal was the packaging. I love that it’s a canister which you get […]

Haldiram’s Karodpati

Snack #11: Haldiram’s Khatta Meetha

I’ve previously written about Haldirams here, here and here.  The flavors I buy most frequently are the plain Bhujia, Aloo Bhujia. The other flavor I buy whenever possible is called Khatta Meetha. It’s always exciting to find it at Punjabi Deli because it’s a little rarer. It’s described as a “Sweet & Spicy blend” on […]

Snack #9: Karison’s Toasted Corn

I was looking for snacks to add into the weekly rotation and came across Karison’s Toasted Corn at Punjabi Deli. The small 5oz bag was only $2. It has a simple ingredient list of sweet corn, salt and canola oil. It’s also made locally in Flushing, NY too boot. They give you a great crunch. […]

Everyone gets in a food rut from time to time. And a difficult week can really kill your urge to make delicious meals. Sometimes though, the answer of what to cook comes right to your nose. I don’t know what happened in the last few months, but suddenly my landlord and/or his family learned to […]
