Where to buy baking and chocolate supplies

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 a lower % of cocoa which is clearly marked on imported chocolate. the basic dark, white and milk variants are available, but there are a lot of imported brands 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.

Needs in Gurgaon

Supermarkets and Departmental Stores

There is a huge selection of basic baking supplies in most supermarkets. Baking pans, mixing bowls, whisks, spatulas, cookie cutters and cupcake liners. They will also usually stock various kinds of sugars, colours and essence. So please check with the store.

Hyderabad:

Q mart – 5th Floor, Uptown Banjara, Road No. 3, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad

Ratnadeep Super Market – They have more than 30 branches across the city

Spar super market  3 stores in hyderabad.

Balaji grand bazar : 2 or 3 branches in the city

Ghanshyam super market: 2 or 3 branches in the city

Chennai

Nilgiris – call to check since the smallers stores do not have the full range of supplies

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)

Spar Supermarket – Couple of branches across the city

Spar has branches 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.
