I am in love with the Chivda I buy loose at Kalustyan's in Murray Hill. From what I can tell, Chivda is an Indian snack made up of rice krispies, peanuts, raisins, fennel and lots of other delicious spices. Problem is, Kaustyan's is a bit of a destination trip for me. I like to go there if I'm in kinda sorta the neighborhood (read: anywhere on the east side) or if I really need to update my spices. Feels kind of silly to schlep there for what is the Indian equivalent of a bag of chips.
Does anyone know if there are places in Brooklyn that sell a good version? I'm sure Jackson Heights has great ones, but at that point, I may as well go to Manhattan. Maybe Sahadi's or somewhere else on Atlantic..?
