As a seasoned RVer, you spend most of your time on the road. As a result, you often have to make do with simple meals that can be easily conjured up in a kitchen the size of a cupboard, often with only a basic stove, oven or microwave at your disposal. Are you running out of ideas for easy cooking? Are you tired of eating the same repetitive fare? Are you craving a hint of spice? Why not give Indian cuisine a try? We'll show you how to spice up your next RV meal.

If you are wondering where you can procure some of the more exotic ingredients, fear not. Your best bet is an Indian grocery store.

Or you could always order online, from the comfort of your RV. Try websites like www.indianfoodsco.com, www.ishopindian.com, www.newworldspices.com.
