While enjoying the autumn colors in NYC’s foods, flora and fauna, I am reminded of Khari Baoli, the largest wholesale spice market in Asia, if not the world. If you are ever in Old Delhi, take a rickshaw through Chandni Chowk, the main road, to Khari Baoli. There you will find an endless array of herbs, nuts, dried fruits, teas, grains and spices. The sweetness and lush green color of cardamom, the tang and dirty yellow of ginger, the spark of chili pepper, the earthy aroma and golden-orange hue of turmeric and the woody scent and burnt yellow color of cumin will delight your senses. If only the autumn in NYC could look and smell a little more like the street of Khari Baoli.
