Ihere are a couple of stalls in the market that call themselves "continental" stalls, which sell spices and other stuff like mooli etc.

I think you may have to have a wander along London Road/Abbeydale road, near the Picture Palace for these, or up spital hill in Burngreave. (you'll probably also fnd these shops in darnall)

Depends what you need. If you want more variety, just take a trip to Leicester and get everything in one go.

I buy things like rice (Kohinoor) and mostly use whatever veg I can get in Tescos. Everything else, lentils, spices and chappati flour, I stock up when I visit my parents who shop in Kingsbury in London and buy 5-10kg of everything.

I have to admit, the section in Tesco gets bigger every time I go there, they even have some frozen veg like bhindi and ghuvar (Taj) which I have in my freezer for back-up veg.

There's some good ones up London Road. There's one which is like a sort of open-fronted warehouse, in an old building up grimethorpe or Firth Park or Wincobank or somewhere that part of town, up above Brightside sort of area. They sell stuff in bulk. Really good place.

Bradford's only an hour away. Tons of asian supermarkets (mainly pakistani). Pakeezah on Leeds Rd sell everything you might wish for, and are cheap! Actually, I think one of them is opening a Sheffield outlet soon.

Tesco are the Evil Empire. They're now concentrating their efforts on ethnic shops and have Indo-Pakistani and Polish sections.

Don't let them take over everything and support your local shops. I always used Shah's on Abbeydale Road for my Indian cookery supplies. They have an amazing range and are cheap too. They've been there forever, well at least back to the 70's

One of my favourite Sheffield shops

I know but they sell everything I want to buy under one roof so what can I do? I'm particular about brands too: only Kohinoor basmati will do (if Tesco hadn't started supplying it I would still be getting it from parents) and chappati flour is freshly milled stuff that comes from a small shop in Kingsbury.

Does Shah's also have a halal meat section? The reason I ask is because I avoid such shops as the smell makes me puke. If they don't, I might actually start going.

No, Shah's is just groceries, no butchers section.

I wouldnt really suggest Shah's considering expired products for sale and a really unhealthy place to buy stuff. I suggest Cash and Carry along Abbey Dale road (almost opposite Spar).. Another place is Yasmin around Eclessal Road.. Which I would say is the best place to buy indian masalas.

Rehman`s just past the traffic lights at abbeydale rd and sheldon rd, opposite the Broadfield pub, spotless and stocks all breads, rice, flour, spices, fresh veg and excellent halal meat section.

Walk down past the markets, along the Wicker, under the Wicker arches and up the hill. LOADS of shops which should sell everything you need.

And Leeds is even closer!

Maumoniats in Brudenell Grove are very good and their vegetarian samosas are fantastic!

So is it just specifically halal meat which makes you puke?
