Saag Paneer

This vegetarian delight features cubes of paneer (Indian cottage cheese) simmered in a creamy spinach gravy. It perfectly balances textures and flavors, offering a protein punch and a comforting taste. Look for fresh spinach (or frozen in a pinch) in our produce section and paneer near the tofu and dairy stores in both Hicksville and Bellerose. Explore our spice aisle to find ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, and garam masala to create a flavorful base.

Chicken Tikka Masala

A classic for a reason, Chicken Tikka Masala is a crowd-pleaser. Tender chicken pieces marinated in yogurt and spices are cooked in rich tomato gravy with cream. Find boneless, skinless chicken breasts in our meat section and explore the marinade section for pre-made tikka masala marinade or yogurt for your creation. Our extensive spice collection has everything you need for the flavorful gravy, including paprika, cayenne pepper, and kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves).

Aloo Gob

This simple yet satisfying dish features potatoes and cauliflower cooked in a fragrant onion-tomato masala. It’s a great vegan option that is perfect for a quick and healthy weeknight meal. Find fresh potatoes and cauliflower in our produce section, and explore the pantry staples for chopped tomatoes, chickpeas (for added protein if desired), and all the necessary spices like cumin, coriander, and turmeric.

Dal Makhani

Dal Makhani is a slow-cooked masterpiece, the king of dals (lentil dishes). Black urad dal (whole black gram) is simmered with butter, cream, and spices for a rich and creamy texture. We offer a variety of dals in our pantry section, including urad dal. Look for butter and cream in the dairy section at both Hicksville and Bellerose locations. Remember to pick up some fenugreek seeds and kasuri methi for that extra depth of flavor.

Masala Dosa

A South Indian staple, Masala Dosa is a crispy, fermented crepe filled with a spiced potato mixture. The perfect combination of textures and flavors makes it a satisfying breakfast, lunch, or light dinner option. Our frozen section offers ready-made dosa batter, and you’ll find potatoes and spices like mustard seeds, urad dal, and curry leaves in the aisles.


Aromatic rice layered with meat, vegetables, and fragrant spices, Biryani truly celebrates Indian cuisine. We offer a variety of basmati rice options in our grains section. Depending on your preference, you’ll find pre-marinated meats or fresh chicken, lamb, or vegetables in the meat and produce sections. Explore the spice aisle for biryani masala or create your blend with ingredients like cardamom, cloves, bay leaves, and saffron (optional, for a luxurious touch).
