Looking for stores with frozen/ready-to-eat Indian food

When I lived in Wisconsin, the Asian grocery store there carried this great line of frozen and ready-to-eat Indian food called Swad. I LOVED their paranthas, and their dal in a pouch. Really easy and fast to make, and pretty tasty, too. Anyone have leads on where I can find this stuff in LA?

  1. Trader Joe's and Whole Foods sell a lot of that boil-in-bag Indian food. TJ's used to sell Tasty Bite but now it's their own brand (which may be the same thing for all I know).

    1. I think I saw those foods at a small Indian grocery store in Artesia, downstairs from Tirupathi Bhimas. But it might be easier to email the company and ask who carries their frozen foods in the LA area.

      1. Try the grocery section at India's Sweets/Spices on Los Feliz.

        1. On the westside, the places I buy a lot of my frozen Indian and ready-to-eat Indian items are:
          -India Sweet House, 5992 Pico, near La Cienega - on one side, a counter service Indian snack/chaat shop and on the other, an Indian grocery
          -Asia Foods, 10200 Venice Blvd. in Culver the same mini-mall as Annapurna...a small Indian grocery

          India Sweet House
          5992 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035

          1. not frozen, but there is a new stand at the hollywood farmer's market on sundays selling packaged indian food that is very fresh and tasty. the market is at ivar and selma.
