      About Tadka Tarot from Ariha Setalvad, founder:

      Way back in April, my sister was laughed out of her local vegetable market for being unable to identify a single vegetable. The lockdown in Bombay had severely curtailed her habit of eating out, and like so many others, she'd resigned herself to learning how to cook. But she had no idea where to begin — how did one pick a ripe tomato? What were the little black seeds in her spice cabinet?

      To try and help, I put together a spice cheat sheet with pictures and basic instructions. Fast forward six months, a dozen spreadsheets, and many sleepless nights — and that janky spice sheet is now Tadka Tarot. Welcome! We see delicious things in your future.

      Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.

      You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
