Whether you’ve packed up your life for an international move or you’re studying abroad for a short time, sometimes you can’t help but feel a little homesick. Traditional dishes from back home are one of the best cures for homesickness. If you’re from India, you’re in good luck. Over the past decade, the population of Indian-born people in America has grown by nearly 40% — and with them, the number of food options from restaurants to grocery stores. 

Below, you’ll find a list of some of the best Indian stores across the United States from New York to California.
