New ethnic grocery hopes to add Thai, Indian food truck – Sioux Falls Argus Leader

By on June 15, 2017

 

An ethnic grocery store has a growing base of customers from several nationalities attracted to the mix of beans, rice, spices and produce.

Greens & Spices, 1016 W. 41st St., sells foods used in cooking in India, Nepalese, Bangladesh, Vietnam, China, Thailand, Ethiopia and other countries. Owner Eswari Muthu and her husband, Muthu Kasi, have the store open from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and noon to 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

Patrons have been finding the store, which opened in April, and traffic is especially busy when new produce arrives, Muthu said. “We have a variety of customers.”

 

Some of the staples are the same in many cultures, and spices add a difference. The store also sells Halal goat meat and several varieties of fish. Muthu likes to use the meats in her own cooking and also enjoys making dosa, an Indian pancake that includes fermented rice and lentils.

“I really like to cook,” she said. She decided to open a store when it was difficult to find vegetables and spices for Indian cooking. Muthu has lived in Sioux Falls 16 years. “I want to serve the customers with a good product and price.”

If the couple get their wish, they also hope to take food on the road. “We are in the process of getting a food truck,” Kasai said. Their business Spicy Wheels would serve Indian and Thai food that Americans would enjoy,  he said.
