Earthen Jar, a small, family-owned restaurant that serves delicious Indian food, is also the only kosher restaurant in Ann Arbor. Their packaged meals are now available at the Ypsilanti Co-Op in the deli cooler. Options include a masala tofu dal bowl, breakfast bowls, mattar alu (potatoes and peas), pakora (veggie fritters), punjabi rice, banana pudding and more. All meals are vegan, with gluten-free options.

            Earthen Jar manager Sim Sethi says, “We just want to provide a healthy vegetarian cuisine for people. We did transition more to gluten-free items because that’s become a big concern for a lot of our customers.”
