To Market

I had been to the wholesale Gudimalkapur ka market in Hyderabad a few days ago early on a rainy morning where fresh produce is sold everyday in heaps at very cheap prices. Although I was not able to click a lot of pictures, here are a few. Enjoy the virtual tour.

  7. Gudimalkapur market is near mehdipatnam towards Tallagadda in Hyderabad AP India. Its not a Rythu bazaar, but a whole sale market where the farmers come and sell it to the Market Agents. It reminds me of those old days where by spending around 20 bucks I use to get a bag full of vegetables sufficient for 10 days.

  8. HI,
    I am a complete newbie to cooking but I have learned few simple recipes from your site. I must say your a blog chef could you tell me where would we get prawns at cheap prices and any tips on how to buy and clean them.

    Rehan, I suggest you always buy fresh instead of frozen prawns for best flavor. In Hyderabad, I always buy fresh prawns from Gudimalkapur market.
