When I am cooking Chinese or Vietnamese dishes, I head for 99 Ranch Market. (Or, one of the other supermarkets out in Monterey Park.) There are unfortunately zero supermarkets here in Santa Monica that carry all the things I need for my recipes.
Are there supermarkets in LA that carry the spices needed in Indian cooking? I am NOT looking for the smaller Indian markets that can be found all over . . . I'm specifically looking for the larger ones (ie, similar to 99 Ranch Market). Do any exist on the Westside of LA? If not, anything relatively close by? If I do end up having to drive down to Artesia, what are some of the larger markets/supermarkets that you'd recommend?
