brown basmati rice

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if there's anywhere on Devon (or in Chicago) where I can buy a bag of brown basmati rice? I'm looking for real Indian basmati, not california "basmati". I've tried the one they sell at Trader Joe's, but did not find it very good.

Thanks for any suggestions

  1. I don't know for sure whether they have it there, but the biggest and most complete grocery store for Indian specialties is Patel Brothers at 2610 W. Devon Ave.

    1. I've gotten Indian brown basmati rice at Market Place on Oakton (4817 W. Oakton) in Skokie.

      1. We buy it at Woodman's on Randall Rd in Carpentersville. I believe it comes in 10 lb bags.

          Thanks for all your suggestions. I actually found it at World Fresh Market on Devon, but I'll keep the others in mind in case I end up not liking it.
