A Visit to the Little Spice Bazaar

Last May, I posted a blog about a fantastic little eatery in Mt. Kisco, New York, called Little Kabab Station, that serves authentic Indian cuisine.  I am very pleased to report that Owner, Bonnie Saran, has taken on a new project just two doors down, called Little Spice Bazaar, where you can find fragrant spices, teas, and an array of Indian grocery items.  But, the main focus of the shop is the lassi and juice counter, manned by Bonnie’s partner in the store, Karan Gera.  Bonnie and Karan met each other while attending graduate school in India and while tossing ideas around for a shared business venture, they decided to introduce authentic Indian lassi.  Lassi is an all-natural refreshing blend of probiotic Indian-style yogurt, which they make themselves, with digestive herbs, spices, and natural extracts.  In India, lassi is popular for improving digestive wellness and raising mental and physical energy levels.  On a recent visit to the Little Spice Bazaar, I was able to sample several flavors of this amazing lassi and I have to say that I was very impressed with each and every one.  The tastes are so pleasing and unexpected.  Thank you Bonnie and Karan for sharing this delicious and healthful drink!
