Q: Where online can I purchase the true Indian spices that you mention in the slow-cooker recipes by Neela Paniz?

Editor: In our series on Indian slow-cooker recipes, Neela Paniz suggests heading to online spice retailers if you can't find some of the harder-to-find ingredients called for in her recipes. While items like curry powder, cumin seeds, and even cardamom seeds can be found in most well-stocked grocery stores, asafoetida, curry leaves, and green mango powder usually prove more difficult to find. If you don't have access to a store with a larger selection of spices or a South Asian grocery store, check out these online sources:
- The Spicy Gourmet: They specialize in organic and fair-trade South Asian spices sourced from Sri Lanka and India.
- The Spice House: A Midwest-based spice company owned by members of the Penzey family.
- My Spice Sage: Great for bulk orders or smaller orders when you just want to try something out.
