Colorful Market Bins

Many markets here offer bulk seeds, nuts, and spices, and the prices are considerably less than what you might pay for the same in the states. I liked the colorful bins filled with the equally colorful products in this photo.

    Nice shot. One thing I’ve noticed is that some merchants assume every customer knows these things, whatever they are. I’d struggle to identify them without names clearly shown.

    Is the food as spicey as in India? Have you learned to cook with many exotic spices?

    • They use lots of onion and garlic and other spices, but not necessarily hot. My husband likes to have chilis separately and take a bite of food and then a bite of chili. Sweat pours down his face when he eats. So it’s generally not hot and spicy food itself, but those who like it, add the chili themselves. And I’m afraid I’m not much of a cook – I would like it so much better if cooking didn’t involve heat!!! I just get too hot in the kitchen!
