Indian Grocery - Quincy or Boston (T accessible)

I have the munchies and am jonesing to make some Indian Ribbon Pakoda (Pakora?). Are there any indian grocery stores in Boston that are T accessible that I can hit? I'm thinking of taking a quick trip during my lunch hour to pick up the ingredients. Or I guess I can wait til I get home tonight and hunt around Quincy.

So any suggestions for indian groceries in Boston or Quincy would be greatly appreciated. Or better yet, if any place sells ready made ribbon pakodas, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance!

  1. There is a small market on Hancock St. in Quincy, called New Kashmir that is worth checking out. I get my lentils and spices there, and they have some fresh and frozen foods. They used to sell samosas to go that were quite tasty. They are on the same block as the new Fuji. If you park in the lot across from the registry and walk up to the street that cuts through to Hancock it is right in front of you. If they don't have the ingredients, they could probably guide you.

    Good luck and let us know what all you find!

      There's South Shore India Market on Quincy Ave (Rte 53) in Braintree. It is about a 5-10 minute drive from Quincy Center. They are in a small strip mall on the right (With Spazio) as you are coming up 53 from Quincy. They have different ready-to-eat items on different days (sometimes kebobs, sometimes samosas, etc.).

    2. There's a market just outside of Brigham Circle, across from the Post ofc on Tremont St. I forget exactly what it is called though. They have a lot of mixes, frozen things, and boil in pouch too.
