Friday shopping: 5 canister picks for the kitchen

Surprised that Friday shopping is back? Oh well! I figured I might as well curate my shopping cart into a post since I spend so much time ogling through random stuff all day. I am in the process of discarding stuff right now and buying canisters/jars for the new kitchen.

On top of my shopping list was a rectangular spice container to hold essentials: turmeric powder, paprika/chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chat masala, and kasuri methi powder. These are what I use on a daily basis. I was particular about the shape since it saves space in the tandem boxes.Round containers are not efficient space-wise. But, to my disappointment I couldn’t find anything in India that was a big rectangular box in steel with internal partitions. A company called Shreeji manufactures what I’m looking for but it is meant only for export. I’m trying to get rid of all plastic containers in the kitchen and use either glass/steel. No plastic goes into my fridge even now.

For now, I’ve made peace with these  containers.
