Indian Vegetables and Herbs : Photographs and Explanations

Vegs

I love exploring grocery stores catering to different ethnic communities, because they invariably lead to some interesting discoveries. Whether these discoveries are different types of chilies at the Mexican grocer or an aromatic spice mixture at the Lebanese store, they are often as exciting to me as finding a new perfume. So, after my recent exploration of Indian greengrocers in Edison, NJ, I took photographs of different vegetables and herbs that I discovered. The photographs, along with brief explanations, are posted on Bois de Jasmin Facebook page. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you want more information!

  • Marla: V, your blog is such a sensory delight! That picture is so mouthwatering! I am now tempted to explore my local Indian grocery store. 🙂 January 5, 2011 at 12:48pm Reply

  • Victoria: Marla, I love trying new things, and Indian vegetables are very interesting to explore. Indian stores offer an impressive number of different gourds and squashes, which are delicious. Snake squash or ridge gourd is something I use instead of zucchini. They have much more flavor. January 5, 2011 at 3:40pm Reply

    so charming, your taste & intelligence!

    I’m an admirer of that legendary perfume,
