Finding Indian Groceries in Stockholm


We Indians love our food and when it comes to cooking, nothing is better for us than a home cooked Indian meal – from idlis to samosas to fish curries to biryanis to dhoklas….the list is endless…

That puts significant focus on finding the right ingredients to indulge in our culinary skills.

Fortunately, in Stockholm, we have a fairly good range of grocery stores (maybe not like Bay Area of USA, but much more than any city in Scandinavia) to fulfil our needs.

We have tried to put together a list of good grocery stores in Stockholm along with the key items that are available there:

  1. Kista Grossen– Wide range of Rice/Flour; most Spices; Maggi; Pickles; good frozen Paneer; frozen Snacks – samosas, parathas; decent quality Lamb; good range of Vegetables/Fruits (mangoes during summer)
    Address/Phone : Torsnäsgatan 4, 164 40 Kista, Sweden, +46 8 751 01 00
  2. Tajmahal– Good range of Flour; Haldiram Snacks; Lentils; Pickles; specific Vegetables like Okra and Bitter Gourd (best quality), also Green Chillies
    Address/Phone : Kammakargatan 40, 111 60 Stockholm, Sweden, +46 8 21 22 81
  3. Indian Food Center– Good stock of Indian Frozen Fish; most Spices
    Address/Phone : Kungsholmsgatan 15, 112 27, Stockholm, Sweden, +46 8 653 21 22, +46 739542443

  1. Hi,

    Where do you think I could find fresh kari patta and methi patta? I’ve been to Kista grossen and Kazi Indian livs and of course Taj Mahal without finding them. I’d love to try and see the difference with fresh ones.

Appreciate your feedback
