I can't really recommend any in particular, since we're lucky that we have access to all these spices in Seattle, but you can try this place http://www.ishoplittleindia.com/index.html.
Looks like they have a good selection of Indian spices. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

Thanks! I ended up doing some research because my desire for a good dal outweighed my laziness about finding the ingredients. I ordered a ton of stuff from ishopindian.com which has a huge inventory and shipped very quickly.

I've since made your Dhaba ka Dal three times, and love, love love it. I'm eagerly awaiting more of your dal recipes. I have been on a vegetarian kick lately so I haven't made the Chicken Makhani yet, but I do have all of the necessary ingredients in my pantry.

There are no Indian or Middle Eastern restaurants within 60 miles of my home, so unless I feel like going for a drive, I am on my own. Your recipes are making it much easier to satisfy my cravings... Thanks so much!

ok, i made this last night and it was wonderful. but a word of warning to anyone else who might make this: the 1 tbsp of kashmiri chili powder makes this an INCREDIBLY hot dish. i like hot food, but this was really painful. other than that, i will make this again and again (with half the chili powder). thanks again!

Susmita

Thanks for the comment. I can see why 1 tbsp might be 'painful'. Chili powders vary in hotness from batch to batch and I guess mine was not as potent. That said, it is probably worth decreasing amounts to be safe. I will edit the recipe. I am glad you liked it, though. Hope you had some TUMS around :-)

jm

No tums needed, thanks to a little yogurt and a lot of rice :) But we thought this was funny: we have an Indian Ringneck Parakeet and this type of bird is known to enjoy spicy food, and will gobble jalapenos like they're candy. Well, when we gave her a taste of this dish (yes, she usually eats the same dinner we do) she ate for a while, but then started chewing on our shirt collars, napkins, anything cloth - she was trying to get the hot out of her mouth! You know when it's too much for an Indian Ringneck, it's super hot! But it's all good... thanks again for the recipes!

Susmita

That is hilarious :-)
