What are some of the stores that you can visit to shop for Indian groceries in the UK?
Find a list of the stores in some major cities in the UK to shop for Indian groceries.
When we are living in the UK, food is one of the most important things. I cannot stress the importance of a healthy diet enough. This is especially when you are living alone and do not have anyone else to cook for you. However, without any further ado, let us get right down to the information about Indian food stores in the UK.
Shopping for Food
I never went out of my way to shop for Indian food while living in London. And when I did need my groceries, I would only go to Lidl or Tesco. The reason why I used to go to Lidl is because of its cheap prices and good quality. There is nothing that Lidl has not which Tesco or the more expensive stores.
Here is a list of items that I used to buy regularly and an estimate of their price.
|Chicken Thighs (750g)||£1.60||Fresh, always|
|Brown Rice||£.80 – £1.20||Good|
|Egg Noodles||£.60 – £.80 for three bricks||Good|
|Eggs||£1.10 for 15 eggs||Good|
|Olive oil||£6 – £10 (lasts about 30 days)||Good|
|Red onion||£0.40 – £0.80||Fresh|
|Berries||£ 2 – £3.50||Fresh, always|
The prices may have gone up or down. But these are the prices I last bought my groceries from Lidl in 2019.
Below, you will find a tabular list of Indian grocery stores all over UK. I haven’t covered some cities as I am still looking, and will update it as soon as I get the information.
