Ethnic Foods

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Following a doctor's visit yesterday I stopped by a grocery named "The Himalaya Store" at Wurzbach and Fredricksburg Road. I was so lost looking at the Indian food - I had no idea what I was looking at, but I finally bought some red lentils and a few other items. Then I went down Wurzbach to Blumeil to a mideastern market called "Ali Baba" and bought some of their delicious pita bread (made fresh daily except Tuesdays), hummus, baba ghanoush and some Karoun's yogurt drink. All the food there is natural, and they even sell goat and lamb at the meat market.
I'm going to make pizzas with the pita bread today for something different and still keep it low fat. I don't know if I could ever get used to Indian food, but I sure like mideastern cuisine and am going to try some new recipes.

    I adore Ali Baba and stop in there on the rare occasions I make it over that way. I can only find green lentils in the HEB by my house, but am always on the look out for new, natural, and healthy foods to try. Thanks for sharing!

    I too love Indian food but it isn't all healthy so be careful if you are eating out. It is just like any other restaurant food check it out first. You can also try some of the pre made dishes in the freezer or ready to eat pouches. Hummus and lentils are my weakness. I make lentil meatballs as I'm not a huge meat eater..

    MIddle Eastern cuisine, especially Lebanese, is my very favorite!! I love Ali Baba and am only sad that it's on the other side of town from me. I didn't realize there was an Indian food grocery in town - it's also far from me but I'll have to try it the next time I'm over there. I also really love Indian food, and the stuff we can make from regular HEB ingredients just doesn't cut it for me!
