    Most shops sell spices such as local "Gantiwala Lasan" or bell shaped rounded garlic.. It has many medicinal properties and is good for digestion, gastric problems and pain relief.
    They also sell Ajwain or Thyme
    Saffron or Kesar is also sold,but I did not buy since I was very much in doubt about the quality.
    Asofoetida is also sold.
    Makhana is another item that is sold which can be used in gravies and chutneys.

    What to buy: Ajwain, garlic, phool makhana, hing/asofetida
