Don’t Spend Too Much Time Cooking!

Hari Raya is right around the corner! This year’s Ramadan seems to flash by this year as we ease into the new post-pandemic normal. We hope this month was filled with blessings and good memories, especially with the opening of many Ramadan bazaars across Singapore – including Bazaar Kita! In fact, Bazaar Kita @ Wisma Geylang Serai Level 2 is still ongoing; AND we have another indoor space at Curbside Crafters (North Bridge Road) where you can get clothes, accessories and food-to-go!

Anyway, with Syawal fast approaching, I’m sure many of you are scrambling to do the finishing touches on your Raya prep – including getting your Hari Raya dishes sorted. Are you worried you can’t get the ingredients in time, or that you simply don’t have time to cook or bake? Today is your lucky day! We’ve got convenient and affordable options for you to ease your stress!

Instant Seasoning Paste
The rise in popularity of instant pastes catered to busy mothers and those who never had the privilege of learning how to cook from scratch but would still like to get their hands dirty and put love on the table. There is no shame in getting instant pastes, for it is consistent, convenient, and most importantly, full-proof! We’ve got two Bazaar Kita merchants who can help speed up your cooking with their delicious instant pastes!

Wahyu Brand

Get home favourites like Lemak Cili Padi and Ayam Masak Merah for under $7! Complete your meal with an assortment of Sambal Belacan types!

Asyura Paste

Supplying over 130 restaurants and stores in Singapore, this fast-growing business offers pastes that are restaurant-quality and authentic. They’re bringing convenience without compromising taste!

Frozen Food
Leave all the seasonings and confusing recipes to the professionals. Isn’t it relieving knowing that you simply have to heat food up and make it presentable? That also means more time for other things that matter- such as your Raya clothes and reconnecting with your loved ones. Our recommendations below are specific to finger foods and small meals that are perfect for crowds this coming Hari Raya!
