Little India’s Tekka Market

This is my favourite place to grocery shop. I like to come in the early afternoons while its still quiet, but for fish its best to come in the mornings.

I usually buy fruit and veg here cos its so cheap. Today I was shopping for ingredients for a chicken coconut curry I’ve wanted to make for a while – from scratch! So I couldn’t carry much fruit but I did get some red watermelon and sweet mangoes.

Personally I like the walk round Tekka Market. I know exactly what exits from the MRT take me where


Pomegranates - yum!


Dessicated coconut - turned out too dry to get juice from. $2 a coconut


A post on my chicken coconut curry recipe coming up soon! I’ll also add the prices of the items I bought from Tekka so you get an idea.

Can’t wait to get cooking.


(To get to Little India, there are several buses from Orchard road (central) – 64, 65, 66 and 67 all take you to Serangoon road and drop you right outside Tekka. Little India MRT is also next to Tekka – Racecourse road and Buffalo road exits being the most handy. My plantain dealer is right next to the Buffalo road exit)
