At a click of its easy-to-use website, Food Temptation ships the raw elements of South Asian cuisine directly to the homes and offices of fine-food fanciers in northern New Jersey and Manhattan. These include more than a dozen varieties of flour, as well as chutneys, ghee, and spices in every color of the visible spectrum, except for the hideous color known only as polka-plaid. Gorgeous produce abounds, from curry leaves ($.79 per piece) to fresh, juicy guava ($3.99/lb.) to extra-life-granting 1-Up mushrooms (market price). Food Temptation also sells nearly 100 varieties of microwaveable Indian meals, such as the spicy, protein-packed chana masala ($2.49).
