Kailash Colony Market

The weekly markets in Delhi are so interesting. Even if you don't need anything and don't get tempted to buy anything from these vendors who carry truckloads of wares and arrange everything meticulously on the roadsides for about 6 hours of business, it is a good outing and a good colourful treat to the eyes. I haven't bought any spices from these guys apart from some methi seeds and mustard seeds and some whole dry red chilies but I am now tempted to talk to these guys more often. The things I have bought have been good so far, may be because I chose cheaper produce which is less likely to be adulterated. The only hassle with these makeshift spice shops is that the wafting smell of chilies gets to my nose and eyes. Will overcome that one day. There are iron griddles, stone silbattas and kharals (different types of mortar and pestles) and lot of steel utensils on sale as well. I love these weekly outings in my neighbourhood. #delhistreetmarkets #delhi
