Anyone who knows where to get indian spices in manila? I need cardamom, etc.
- Spices 'n Flavours
I am a sucker for spices. I can spend hours in a spice market...and wouldn't bat an eye at plunking down a good bit of cash for them (or any kind of flavor -- like oils, salts, sauces, etc -- for that matter). On the first day C and I moved into our new home, we opened our kitchen cupboard where I had stashed all my "stuff", with a view to check what we needed to get from the grocery. Seems like actual food was cirtical here, because although the shelves were almost full, there was nothing but but rows spices, spice mixes, curry pastes, dried herbs, canned and bottled sauces, infused oil, and various kinds of sugar and salt. My dowry.
So you can imagine my absolute delight at finding a store that filled itself with just these things! I learned about Spices 'n Flavours through a good friend who asked me: "If there was a store that just sold spices and related items, would you go?" Um. Yes? Hello! Lead the way!
The minute I walked in the store I was smitten. Barrels filled star anise and peppercorns. Floor to ceiling shelves (and those adorable "library-style" ladders) filled with bottles of ground and whole spices, as well as dried herbs and spice mixes. Big glass jars of loose tea. Bottles of sauces (including Nando's Peri-Peri Sauce...am going back for that!). A small selection of Japanese condiments. Organic dried herbs and flavor extracts. Different types of flour/startch (like tapioca flour). Aaah...a wonderful gem of a store in my eternal spice hunt!
Above is part of the selection I got: dried kaffir lime leaves, dried galangal, dried holy basil, and Szechuan pepper. I'm so excited! Just their names are sending me into a tizzy of anticipation of how I am going to use them...even if, at the moment, I still haven't the foggiest! If any of you have suggestions, please do send them over :)
Here's another bunch of flavor I brought home (above)...long pepper. It is closely related to black pepper, but is supposed to be hotter. As of now, I can definitely say it smells different. This is the first time I have come across it and I have no idea how to use it just yet (although there will be a lot of experimentation I can assure you!). So, again, if any of you out there have suggestions, please feel free to pass them on!
Aside from the spices and what-such, they also have these coffee/tea stirrer things with crystalized sugar at the end. I have seen the ones with the regular stirrer before, but not these ones that use a cinnamon stick as the stirrer! Aren't they adorable? So, of course, I had to have some of those too...
I am oh so happy with my loot and am presently in that nice state of dreaming of ways to use them...

- I am a former chef and agree with most of the other answers, the base spices in Indian food are used world wide by many other cultures and cuisines, in fact alot are not native to India, but were brought there by the people who conquered or when the Raj in India and over the century's from the Turks, Mongols, Arabs, English, Portuguese, Chinese and so on, hot peppers are not from India, potato's and other things. I worked in Asia, the Caribbean and here in Canada like the other fellow said our grocery store have many of the same ingredients, plus here in Toronto Canada, we have over 4 million people, and a large Indo-Pakistani community, Caribbean, Mexican/Hispanic-Central America, European and other Asian ethnicity's, so we have anything and everything and even 10 shopping district for all those communities to shop for those foodstuff, there set up to allow people to have access to all the foods from home including fresh produce and meats.00
