Indian Grocery - Spices & Masala Dabba

I'm itching to find a traditional Indian spice box set made up of two lids, as set of inner tins and one or more spice spoons. The set is found in most Indian homes and is used to store the most commonly used spices.

I could buy it at the above link but think it would be much more fun to go to an Indian grocery. Any suggestions?

  1. India Cash and Carry in Sunnyvale on El Camino Real. Call first though.

    1032 E El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA

    1. Whichever is closer to you, but call first.

      Namaste Plaza

      India Cash & Carry
      1058 Shell Blvd # D
      Foster City, CA 94404
      (650) 212-0608

      Dana Bazar
      5113 Mowry Ave
      (between Blacow Rd & Farwell Dr
      )Fremont, CA 94538
      (510) 742-0555

      1. India Cash & Carry is where I bought mine. At that time, they only had one with a steel lid, not with a transparent lid. Surprisingly, World Market also carries this item (with a transparent lid, and of smaller size than Cash & Carry, I think):
        They have several locations in the Bay area.

        1. I think I saw a nice one at Milan in Berkeley.

            Ditto, Milan on the corner of 9th and University. AND you can pick up a video while you shop.

          2. Thanks everyone for the leads...will call before going on a fruitless adventure!
