So much to little time to see it all.

Take a Foodie Tour of Australia’s Largest Indian Supermarket
Udaya Spices Supermarket in Liverpool

I must be dreamin'. I've entering Udaya Spices and I'm looking at three checkouts, a sweet shop, DVD's, CD's and aisles of Indian food as far as I can see. And there's an escalator heading to the second floor.

This place is cavernous. Every Indian grocery shop I've ever been to in Liverpool and Harris Park has been fairly modest in size. Some a little pokey, a little crowded, with narrow corridors to navigate. Not here.

This is like the David Jones of Indian shopping. Well, maybe more like Franklins.

The David Jones of Indian Shopping

The wall of curry powder

Apart from being mightily impressed by its spaciousness, I am overwhelmed by the range of products available. It's just staggering.

And there are not just grocery items here. There is Indian fashion, Indian kitchenware and a huge collection of Pooja or Hindu ritual worship items. I was looking for a new incense burner and did I come to the right place.

I love the incredible range of heat and serve vegetarian curries. $1.50 each or 3 for $4.00 for a mutter paneer, navratan korma or a dal makhani. The pickle and chutney range is mind blowing. Yeah sure, you've had a sweet mango pickle of chutney but what about coriander or mint chutney? There are aisles of teas, aisles of curry powder.

There's a wall of freezers with a gobsmacking range of parratha's, chapattis, roti's, samosa's, etc. The choice is so diverse, I just couldn't decide. Hell, there's even fresh fruit and vegetables.

Frozen Indian breads

Some serious size Indian pots for serious Indian cooking

I feel I really need a tour guide and a few hours to do this place justice. I end up buying the familiar (to me) and a few surprise finds like the coriander chutney and samosa chutney. But I'll be returning to buy the many other new finds I've discovered. Jackfruit jam anyone?

just beware, they have a policy if you drop something and it breaks, you will be forced to buy the product.
