Owner Revathi Chillapalli combined 20 years in the food business with a love for introducing Ohioans to the health benefits and exotic flavors of Indian food to establish Deepam India, an emporium for Indian groceries and meals available for takeout or dine-in. The shop’s restaurateurs prepare food fresh daily, treating shoppers to a selection of 12–14 entrees that, like a merry-go-round with Earth wedged into it, rotates daily. Diners can clasp fingers around flaky filled samosas ($1.25 each) or savor dosas, fermented crêpes made with rice batter and lentils ($5.50–$6.50). Individuals and restaurant owners alike peruse the grocery section to stock up on Indian breads ($2.99), frozen vegetables ($1.99), and lentils ($2.99–$5.99) and to admire the wall-mounted oil paintings created by the shop’s owner. The enthusiastic staff welcomes questions about particular dishes, the health benefits of Indian food, and the health risks of eating Indian silverware.
