Planning to wow your dinner guests by cooking up some lip-smacking gourmet Mughlai food but don’t know where to get your spices from? Worried that packaged supermarket spices won’t have the flavor or freshness to make your dish the culinary superstar it is meant to be? We bring you a list of the best market spots to pick up fresh spices in Mumbai.
Damji Manji is located in Null Bazaar, another part of town rich in spice stores. Featuring freshly ground spices of every kind as well as their own masala mixes – particularly the mutton, chole, biryani and chicken masalas – this store has been exporting and trading spices for over half a century.
This store in Prabhadevi cleans and grinds its own spices, becoming one of the city’s best sources for fresh and flavourful spices. They even export their spices abroad, but lucky for you they are just a short walk from the Prabhadevi Temple. They also have their own spice mixes or masalas.
