Where on the web can I buy Indian "Hot Mix"?

  • m

A small local store carries only occasional small bags of "hot mix" (spiced lentils and cashews and things made from channa flour). Does anyone know where I can order this directly? I am especially fond of the mix by Deep, with the lamp logo, or a brand called Royal, I believe, which I found in Boston.

      I suspect that Maya is not near NYC, so going to Lexington Ave or to Queens would probably require a great deal of travel.

      Beware of NYC-centrism!

        Although she might get more geographically correct answers if she posted on "What's my Craving"

          True, I am not really close to NYC, I am in Virginia. I've never heard of "What's my Craving"... but it sounds interesting! THanks for the help!
