I promised you guys an in depth look at an Indian supermarket and now I"m delivering. It all started when I went searching for jackfruit in this post. I've been hooked on the store ever since.
If you haven't been to one, I encourage you to take a peek and look around. You can find some great deals and some new foods there (for me at least!).
Vegan Lent so I didn't try any of the dairy items.
Chick Pea Fries.
Irish Soda Bread.
This Chakri looked interesting..they are spiral shaped crispy Indian rice cakes.
Snacks and more snacks! Where to begin? I picked up a bag of Chana Dal (split chickpeas with spices). They are SPICY and crunchy!
This trip was the first time I noticed a bakery case full of goodies.
A trip to the Indian market is worth it just for the spices. They are so inexpensive. I bought chili powder there before but it's way too spicy for us, except in tiny amounts (it wasn't even the spiciest kind). So be warned about that. This tumeric's spiciness is right on track with what we've bought at our regular supermarket. I also picked up some Garam Masala but haven't used it yet.
Dried Chickpea Hummus.
I accidentally bought this Garlic-Ginger paste instead of plain ginger paste but we are loving it.
The different chillis all sound good but also spicy. We tried some Carrot Chilli and it's pickled carrots in oil. It is spicy but nice to add a little kick to your meal.
Lays potato chips, breads and dried rice.
Here was my haul from the trip. I hope you enjoyed this visit to an Indian supermarket. You might have one near you and not even realize it. Since I've been to this store, I've noticed two others in the same area. I'll be checking them out next!
Let's keep in touch!
