That sounds like a good experience, TA. Lucky you having an Asian supermarket on your doorstep. The closest we have is in Cambridge (16 miles /  20km) but not Asian - a great native Italian store that imports stuff from Italia weekly and other good speciality shops. Her mum has an Indian shop nearby that sells authentic poppadoms amongst loads of other good stuff. We love those poppadoms.

One of the highlights of my trip to Bangalore last year (work, not vacation) was being taken to a decent supermarket where they had a great range of spices and Indian specialities. I grabbed everything that looked vaguely attractive. Much of that bounty is still on the go here in the Cottage. Some we have yet to try out. Not everything was spectacular. I notice that Fiona has not blogged about the curry she made using one of the Indian "curry powder" packs. For reasons that are lost in the mists of time, she decided that the recommended quantity of four teaspoonfulls was not enough and chose to add four serving spoonfulls. Just to prove that the original recipe on the pack was probably very good, I made a curry a few nights later with the recommended levels of curry powder. It was still awful! Yell
