Pure mustard oil, preferably in Astoria
I'm looking for pure mustard oil. The only mustard oil I could find at Trade Fair was blended with soya oil and doesn't have nearly the flavor I'm looking for. I know there are issues with selling it in the USA, but has anyone seen the pure oil for sale? Preferably in Astoria, but I'm willing to go to Jackson Heights.
I get mine at Patel's in Jax Heights. Did you try the little Bangladeshi grocery at B'way & 31st St. They might have it. Don't be deterred by the warning label: "Not for consumption." It's some import technicality. Totally fine to cook with. (And some people use it to moisturize their hair too -- dual purpose!)
