For all the Indians whose only baggage from back home used to be packets and packets of spices, dals, ready to eat mixes etc, your luggage just got a little lighter!
An enterprising Egyptian obviously figured that the "Indians were coming!" has decided to open a store with Indian groceries. So you get your dals, some spices etc. He has this long list of items which I shall try and reproduce a little later.
His name is Hassan and his outlet is on Road 9.
EDIT: Let me correct the location. He is based in Mohandassein and will home deliver in certain areas. I know he delivers in Maadi. Have asked for his permission to quote his number on my blog. So all of you who want to stock up on whatever is available with him, his number is 0111883800. Have ordered for the first time from him today - toovar dal, local egyptian musard oil and some atta (nisha, hope that gladdens your heart!). Inshaallah, it shall be good!!
