Oak Tree Road Indian Grocery Stores
For South Asians, one of the advantages of going to Oak Tree Road in Edison is the chance to purchase Indian grocery items.
Edison and Iselin have several Indian grocery stores including Subzi Mandi, Bhavani Cash and Carry, Patel Brothers and Apna Bazaar.
Even though Edison is not that close to us, we make it a point to stop at the Indian grocery stores on Oak Tree Road on our way back from the Atlantic City casinos.

The Indian grocery stores on Oak Tree Road also carry Indian vegetables that are not easily available at American stores. These are stuff like Karela (bittergourd), Curry Leaves, Turmeric Root, Betel Leaves etc.
For the most part, the grocery and vegetables are fresh in the Indian stores on Oak Tree Road since there's high traffic to these stores.
Lately, the Indian stores in Edison and Iselin have expanded their frozen food section.
I have noticed ready to eat Idli, Vada, Masala Dosa, Palak Paneer, Garlic Naan, Channa Masala, Baingan Barta and a variety of other Indian curries. Then there's the usual Indian cold drinks like Thums Up, Limca, Frooti etc and my favorite Malai Kulfi Ice Cream.
Whenever we visit Oak Tree Road, we make it a point to stop by at least one of the stores and stock up on provisions for a month or two on Bhel Puri mix, Rice, Wheat, Idli Rava, Maggi Noodles, Britannia Good Day biscuits etc.
