Enjoying the Indian Spread  
Here's a snapshot of Indian Cooking lessons conducted at my residence in Bangalore. In this class, I had two lovely ladies from Australia, who were big fans of Indian food.

At the class, these two Aussie ladies got hand-on experience in preparing popular North Indian dishes. It was wonderful to see their excitement when they made Naan, Roti and Parata. Also they enjoyed tasting the fruits of their labour.

Choice of Baking Ingredients at Choice Trade Links

Choice Trade Links - Chakai, Trivandrum
Another happy news for home bakers in Trivandrum. One more shop selling all sorts of baking ingredients in our city. This store - Choice Trade Links is located at Chakai, close to by-pass road.

You get all the baking ingredients:
  • Baking powder
  • All types of essence
  • Cake margarine 
  • Icing Sugar
  • Chocolate (White, Milk and Dark)
  • Glycerin
  • Gelatin
  • All dry fruits
In my few shopping trips to Choice Trade Links I'm delighted with their customer service, something which is a rarity in Trivandrum. Once they opened their shop during break time. Also, they patiently answered my question over the phone and they even called me back when the stock arrived.

For home bakers in Trivandrum, if you're staying this part of Trivandrum, then Choice Trade Links would be thought of. Also, I call and ask if they  supply small quantities as they mostly deal with wholesale quantities.
