Indrani said...

Sum said...

Hey! This is very useful..... i had been looking for paper muffin cups from a long time....

Indrani said...


Thank you so much for getting back to me. I have called them and they told me that they have it.

They were kind enough to agree to send it to me in Visakhapatnam.

Thank you very much Mrs. Suma.

You can find whip cream powder @ Amaravathi Essence Mart (near KR Market Flyover, 41, A S Char St, Chickpet ). Whip cream ( ie the liquid form) is available in Spar.

Suma Rowjee said...

@Blue- You get mini muffin paper liners in MK Ahmed Stores, essence marts near KR Market flyover. Try Jamals for larger ones.
Butter paper is available at most departmental stores. Do let me know in where area you live in, may be able to help better!

Blue said...

i stay in kaggadasapura, near to indiranagar. i think i will try jamals whitefield forum mall for the butterpaper and muffin liners.

First of all let me thank u for sharing such useful information. Could u please tell me what would be the price of whip topping cream. One bakery guy is ready to sell me Rich's whip topping cream 1 Kg pack for Rs 180/-. But I hesitated to buy thinking that it was very expensive. Kindly tell me if the price would be the same everywhere? Can we store it in the freezer for a long time once we open the pack?

Saritha Thomas said...

Thanks you for taking time to help fellow Bangaloreans. Can u pls tell me how to locate Durga Enterprises, Madiwala -?

Suman said...

Hey! This is awesome. I am new to Bangalore and would always wait to go back to Chennai to do my shopping!!...

Has anyone ever tried to buy heavy cream, molasses or corn syrup? If yes, could you let me know where you get it from?


Suma Rowjee said...

@Sarita- This is at a small side alley near the Hanuman temple. Think there is one shop on the main road called as Shobha stores. Will try to collect the exact info on directions next time I visit.

@Suman- Welcome to Bangalore Bakers Club!! You can try Amul fresh cream , though am not sure if it would classify as heavy cream. Or try Rich's whipping cream. For the other things try Spar or Super Market. Good Luck and keep in touch!!

Suman said...

Thanks Suma. Amul fresh cream is a low fat cream and so would not work. I could try out the whipping cream as suggested.

Till I am able to check out the corn syrup - would you know if I could use sugar syrup as the substitue in chocolate glaze?

Suman said...

Hey! Would anyone know of a simple sugar paste recipe?

Suma Rowjee said...

@Suman- Check out this recipe for sugar paste here

Am sorry, have no idea about the sugar syrup as a substitute, haven't tried making a glaze:-(

Madhur said...

Thanks a ton Suma...I cant tell you how helpful your blog has been for me today...I have been struggling hunting the cake decoration stuff in the nearby departmental stores and those guys used to look at stars when i would ask them for cookie cutters, cake toppers or any baking related material....I am gonna visit Fatima bakery this weekend itself...Thanks a ton

kala said...

hey suma , your info has been of so much help!! thanks a ton.
any idea as to where would i get heavy cream in blr ?

suma said...

@Madhur- Haha, its a big challenge in Blore right??
@Kala- Haven't come across heavy cream anywhere, only whipping cream and Amul low fat fresh cream. Will surely update if I see it anywhere..

Anonymous said...

thanks for sharing this wonderful info.had a hard time locating some of the things.

u can find glucose syrup/liquid glucose in nilgiris, brigade road. i read somewhere that it can be substituted for corn syrup in some recipes.
i also found golden syrup, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, mascarpone cheese(used in tiramisu) and many other in spar, mantri mall, malleshwaram.

Hi Suma,

First of all, THANKS! The info you have shared is invaluable - I know how much i struggle to find baking ingredients. I am a novice baker and would love to know where I can find the following:-
Angel food cake pan
Souffle moulds
My mail id is
And lastly, its great to know there are so many baking enthusiasts Bangalore :)

Sasha said...

Hi Suma,

This was such a useful post and thanks to this, I discovered the Institute of Baking where I've signed up for a course next week :)

Where did you find the egg separators?

Some info from my side:
1. Organic vanilla pods and organic vanilla powder are available in FabIndia.
2. Yesterday I baked an eggless dish and it turned out soft & fluffy. I noticed on some of your posts that you're not enthusiastic about eggless baking. I used 'flax eggs'. I ground up some flax seeds (about 2 tblspn) and mixed with 6 tblspn of water, stirred and kept aside. I got caught up on unexpected chores at home and so my baking project was postponed for 3 hours. The flax-water combo remained and I stirred occasionally. By the end of 3 hours it was gelatinous and gooey like an egg and I believe that's what made my baking turn out well yesterday! Just wanted to share :) Of course, you need not keep it for 3 hours, but I believe that at least 20-30 minutes should help!

nitasha said...

It's great to see such a nice group of cake bakers. I will love to be a part of this group. I want to join icing classes . Can someone guide me . I stay near Banaswadi.

suma said...

@Meghana- Try for the cake tin at Adams or Nilgiris. Am not sure if we get Kirsch here, try at SPAR hypermarket or Supermarket, Brigade Road. You can get souffle moulds at Arihanth Plaza , Commercial Street and maybe Adams too.
@Sasha- You can get egg separators at Adams and Jamals too. Great to know we get vanilla pods and powder at Fabindia. Thanks a ton!! Have fun with your baking course.
@Nitasha- Welcome to the group! No idea where near Banaswadi you can learn icing. Will keep you posted if I come across any info.

Suman said...

Hi Suma,

Would you have an idea if we get meringue powder or albumen powder? If yes - where?

Also would you have any idea of pasteurised eggs? Do we get them here? I will check in Spar but have you tried anywhere before?

Suma Rowjee said...

Hi Suman! I haven't come across meringue powder here nor pasteurized eggs. Nope, haven't tried to get them here... ,must beg someone to get meringue powder from the US;-)

We do get expensive packaged eggs in Food World,they must be low cholesterol, no idea if they are pasteurized though..

Suman said...

Hi Suma,

Just wanted to let you know that I have seriously gotten into baking. My speciality is CUPCAKES.

I have an entire range (with eggs & eggless) and if anyone is interested, please do pass on my email ID:

Here is a link of a few pics of the cupcakes that I have baked. I have an entire list of them and can send across the list with the prices.

Thanks in all the support that you have given me :) You have an awesome blog here!

Great job Suma that's a lot of work!
Some more info if you need it..You can get Rich's cream directly from the dealer called Shakti on the road opposite Coles park Junction - don't have the number but am sure you can get it from just dial.
For the ones who live in the North of Bangalore, there is a place called Baker's needs on Oil mill road near Kammanahalli where you get all ingredients, boxes and boards at wholesale rates.
And for the one who lives at Banaswadi, check the website, they may be taking classes. Their cakes look awesome...

Thankyou very much for sharing information on baking ingredients. I stay in HSR Layout. As Durga Enterprises is nearer to my place today just now i went to that place. Actually i went for Baking soda,whipping cream.But i could not get these two from there. Can you suggest me a place nearer to HSR Layout. I need baking soda,whipping cream . As i am new to baking i could not find these in shops. I am new to bangalore.

Moreover i got one more Phone number of Durga enterprises. Ph NO.25502079.
I found this shop with very difficulty. It is located in between houses one Agency running. Actual name is Durga Agencies. It is not Durga Enterprises.On the main road Madiwala Hanuman Temple, one Ayyappa temple is there. Between Ayyappa temple and Laxmi Venkateswara Medical Stores one lane goes inside. We have to take that lane, go further then near to madiwala post office it is located. If we ask for this durga agencies local residents will guide us.

M D said...

Hey Suma, excellent compliation. To add to these, Hypercity mall in Brookefields sells

Other imported nuts
Cooking spray
Whipping Cream spray
Varieties of imported cheese

I also saw waffle maker once, not sure if they still keep them.

I am not sure how relevant this is, but it may help your readers... Foodworld in Whitefield too has a stock many imported ingredients like Whipping Cream Spray, Lindt Dark Chocolates, Haagen Daz ice creams, imported soy milk, imported silken tofu, gelatin, variety of pastas, gnocchi and lasagna sheets, sauces like Teriyaki, Worcestershire, Tabasco, imported vegetables like Chinese cabbage, celery, broccoli, asparagus, wheat-grass, fresh parsley, granny smith apples, etc. I hope this helps. :)

@Yasmin -Thanks for the info! Haven't found puff pastry sheets here:-(. Same for double cream. U do get low fat cream,Amul and Whipping cream.

Lavanya Karthik said...

This is a very helpful post. I use to get my baking supplies from MK Retails. They carry a wide range. Recently I am looking for Almond flour/meal to make macaroons. Where can I get it in Bangalore?


suma said...

Hey Lavanya! I haven't seen almond flour here, your best bet would be to make your own at home!! Good luck!

Lavanya Karthik said...

Thanks Suma. For making Almond flour, just medium course grinding the almonds in mixer would be sufficient I guess. Please correct me if wrong.

Saritha Thomas said...

Hi Suma

There is a store called Prem Provisions at Ibrahim Saheb Street(Parallel to Commercial street road)
Address: # 6, at Ibrahim Saheb Street, Bangalore 560 001.
Phone: 080 25592715

So for those who can’t make it to IBCA, etc can drop by here after shopping at Commercial street!

You get Cooking chocolate-milk/dark/white(weight as required), dry fruits, orange peel, pine nuts, walnuts, basic baking essentials etc there.

U have been a great help for many so here’s a small addition from my end!

Suma Rowjee said...

@Lavanya- Do check this link
@Saritha- Thanks a ton!! Will update this!

Priyanka said...

hi Suma,
where can i get coffee liqueur in bangalore?

vandana said...

This is a great information...your other posts also have lots of information ..

I want to know where you get parchment paper from ?

Is butter paper same as parchment paper because I used butter paper this weekend for my baking this weekend but the paper just got stuck with the cake and didn't come out .Any help ?

Suma Rowjee said...

@Priyanka- Haven't come across coffee liqueur, check Spar or Supermarket. Do let me know if u find it anywhere.

@Vandana- Butter paper and parchment are different. Most shops sell butter paper here, check IBCA, you may get it there in all probabilities.

Good luck!

Thank you so much. :D
I just have a question, does anyone know any place where they hold cooking/baking classes for teenagers and adults? Where they teach you the basics first and then move on to bigger things?

Hi Suma,

Priya here.. Where else can you get bundt pans other than at Jamal's? I went to the one in Sigma mall and they said it was closed since a month.. :(

Indulge said...

Dear Suma,
Firtsly, I would liek to say that your blog is doing a wonderful job for all baking enthusiasts.

I am an artisan Chocolatier now transgressing into baking. Visit me at / 9449016849. We take individual as well as corporate orders.

My biggest problem in Bangalore has been finding Baking tools suppliers (tools such as scrapers, turntables), organic food colouring and special chocolate as in produce from various regions of the world such as South America, Ghana, Peru etc. As of now I import everything from Singapore and Malaysia. Any local contact especially for origin chocolate would be much appreciated.


suma said...

@Evelyn - IBCA does conduct baking classes, check with them.

@Priya- U can try for the pans at their other outlet at Forum Value Mall, Whitefield. Check IBCA too, Adams, Shivajinagar

@Sushma- Great to know about you! Turntables, bench scrapers etc are available at IBCA and Adams. General Additives may be of help too. Sorry, have no idea about the chocolate, will update here if I get any info.

what are shops near KR fly over selling Rich's whipping cream?

goldie said...

Wow... looking at all the comments I am feeling very scared of finding ingredients and resources in Bangalore when we came back from US.

As a baker.. at present I feel lucky to be in US....but getting scared of what is going to happen to all the recipes that would require a ton of ingredient that are not available in Bangalore :(...


Mano said...

Hi Suma,

This is such an enviable treasure trove!! Thanks for taking the initiative to put this together. I have always been a great fan of baking but never really got down to doing it my self. However my eight year old has now got me hunting for someone who will teach me baking !! (things the little ones make you do!) I am based in Jayanagar, Bangalore and would like to know if you offer baking classes (weekend classes would be ideal) or know of some one who does. I eagerly await your reply.

Sasha said...

To the poster above asking about pure maple syrup:

I found Grade A Maple Syrup, Canadian brand, in MK Retail, AECS Layout, Brookefields (near Whitefield) once.

At present, I'm able to find organic Grade B Maple Syrup in HyperCity, near Kundanahalli Gate. It's by a UK brand called Waitrosee and costs Rs.765/- for 330 gm.

The sad thing though is that most stores don't stock these kind of 'exotic' ingredients I have to keep looking!

Shruthi said...

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou so much for these information!!!!! This is very helpful!

SHRUTHI said...

Hi, This is Shruthi from Mysore. First I have to thankyou for these wonderful and helpful info. I don't get anything in Mysore so i'm stuck making the same old chocolate cake every time! But now I can try so many new cakes! I just have one query though. One cake recipe from Nigella Lawson mentioned a Golden Syrup. I don't know what that is or where to get it. Can anybody help me please? I'd be so grateful. Thankyou again!

Priya Kumar said...

Thank you for putting this information together. I went to IBCA and found everything there except the bundt/tube pans. There is occasionally some bakeware on too, but you would have to try various search strings to get the right match. But worth trying if you are comfortable shopping online!

Lovely Job Suma!

I just got my first OTG the day before and am all excited, yieeeyyy!!! So that makes me a newbie :)
The interest developed during my stay in Holland.....a fact- to get the baking ingredients & accesories is much easier in the west than here.

Indeed a great compilation done by dear Suma & inputs from rest of the junta is a boon for every baker!

I stay near Koramangala and would like to know if there are any particular shop selling the accesories, ingredients for baking apart from spar.....also if anybody has any clue about baking classes nearby Kormangala, plz let me know!
Happy Baking all :)

This is for information who are eagerly waiting for whip cream. I do not know whether it is costly or not.

Hi Nisha! Good whipping cream which doesn't cost an arm and a leg - Rich's at Fatima Bakery, Hosur Road and at Metro, then IBCA, Double Road. You can also find it at Spar Hypermarket and at Hypercity outlets, but its quite expensive. Do let me know if you find it elsewhere!

Terrific compilation. In case you wanted to update your main posted, I wanted to note that "The Super Market" (Brigade Road) has other things like pure maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, imported cereals (Rice Krispies) and also now carries a range of gluten-free products like GF flours, etc. Anything he doesn't have, he can generally get--just ask. Can also call ahead to find out if something's in stock.
