Sue Z.'s Finds

To make fabulous Indian food at home, just follow the instructions on Elizabeth Chawla’s Kaveli mixes, which include the traditional spices needed for an authentic north Indian culinary experience. My favorites among the Wisconsin-made mixes are the Tandoori Chicken and Naan mix, the Kali Daal, and the Masala Chai (kavelifoods.com; Local D’lish, 208 N. First St., Mpls., 612-886-3047, localdlish.com).

To really get your grill clean after a long summer of barbecuing, try a Great Scrape grill-grate scraper (thegreatscrape.com). The wooden paddles made by three St. Paul brothers have custom grooves that gently and efficiently remove leftover grease.

CityKid Java is celebrating 10 years of giving back to kids in the Twin Cities with a new blend called Lake Street Blend (city-kidjava.com). Grab a bag at Target or Whole Foods, and feel good about supporting a business that does good.
