Jackson MS ethnic groceries?

Thanks for the info...I knew it was unwise to eat from the buffet and you just confirmed it. I'll give the tandoor fish a try.

Jackson MS ethnic groceries?

butter chicken usually is so rich it's almost hard to mess up; a friend and I ate at Spice Avenue recently and we thought the buffet was watered down. I suppose that's what we get for trying the buffet! I haven't been to their grocery store. I have, however, been to Patel's Grocery and consider it a wonderful find. In addition to dry goods, vegetables, spices, and an extensive frozen section, they have fresh-made Indian snacks, some of which are a tad strange--the samosas, however, at 89 cents each are great--a little variable from day to day, but I have had them on at least two occasions when I was thankful I had driven away from the store or I would have eaten 10 of them before being able to stop myself! Compared to the major grocery stores, on those occasions when they both have the same thing [for example a jarred chutney or such], it has been significantly cheaper at Patels. I'm pretty glad I found them, though they are a little out of the way [for me] and have no morning hours. I'll have to check the Spice Avenue grocery section.
