An afternoon in Little India

The other day, my friend and fellow blogger, Krista Skellern of The Wellist, went on a field trip to Little India.  This is a little area outside of Los Angeles.  It is full of markets and spices, sari stores, jewelers, and restaurants.  We had lunch at a southern Indian vegetarian restaurant called the Udupi Palace, which was amazing.  Samosas, vegetable cutlets and vegetable pakoras dipped in 4 different sauces, my favorite being the mint sauce.  And for our main course, the Palek Paneer, which is spinach and paneer cheese cooked with onions, tomatoes and Indian spices.
Be sure to check out the ever traveling Krista on her blog and on instagram.
