Multi city Shopping Guide for Baking Supplies and Chocolate Material

I receive atleast 2 dozen mails per week asking for various bits of information about where to buy material for chocolate making, not just in hyderabad, but in bangalore and chennai too. Replying individually may not always be possible. I thought it would be helpful to write a single post on this for the benefit of my readers. Most of the vendors here are wholesale / bulk supplies. At the end of the post, I’ve included information of a few supermarkets/ departmental stores which stock a few items too.

Please note that these are just pointers. The best way to find something locally is to ask around. The internet is not yet full of information about hole in the wall places in india where supplies are available.

For Chocolate Making you will essentially need cooking chocolate slabs, Chocolate moulds, essence, colour, wrapping paper, etc. If you want to attempt fancy packing you will need gift boxes, fancy bags and pouches and other chocolate making paraphenelia. the places listed below have all of these.

A word about Chocolate Slabs: There are many varieties which  differ in price and obviously quality. My advise to you is to buy the best that you can afford. In India, there is usually no indication of percentage of cocoa which is clearly marked on imported chocolate. the basic dark, white and milk variants are available.

Most supermarkets and large and medium sized departmental stores are now stocking baking material and paraphernalia. A lot of facebook groups also have resource guides with pointers and information.

Amma naana – Chamiers Road Nandanam

Bangalore

Nilgiris Supermarket  – Brigade Road (has practically everything needed for baking, cake decoration and chocolate making, they also have excellent cocoa powder under their own brand.  Makes good sense to stock up, the other myriad branches across the city don’t have as much stuff)

Auchan Supermarket – 3rd floor, Salarpuria Tech Point, Koramangala, Mantri Square Malleshwaram, Bannerghatta Road, Gopalan Signature Mall

Auchan has brances in Chennai, Coimbatore, Mangalore, Pune, Delhi, Gurgaon, Pune, Vijayawada and Ghaziabad. They are a well stocked supermarket and should have most of the basic pans, baking tools and ingredients needed for baking and chocolate making.

Online Resources

There are a lot of reliable websites that have good quality, often imported baking, pastry and chocolate supplies, tools and equipment. If you live in a city that does not have a store, these are good (tho usually more expensive) options. This is not an exhaustive list. Please leave a comment if you know of any other sources.
