Besi Bela Bath in Jackson Heights?

Where can I find besi bela bath in Jackson Heights? Just discovered this dish at Ganesh Temple Canteen and was hoping to find a place where I can get it closer to home.

Ganesh Temple Canteen
45-57 Bowne St, Queens, NY 11355

  1. It's a South Indian (Karnataka) dish, so your chances of finding it in a Jackson Heights restaurant are slim. Perhaps at one of the S. Indian joints in Manhattan? The grocers in Jackson Heights do sell a decent mix for preparing at home though.

    1. Unfortunately I think Joe MacBu is right. Jax Heights doesn't have any authentic South Indian places that I've seen. You might find this dish at Saravanna Bhavan in Manhattan, if that's an easier trip for you to make...
