Basic primer for Indians coming to Egypt

A lot of indians who come to Egypt or plan to travel here : their first question is where do I buy Indian supplies?

I get a lot of my supplies from India or Dubai since my husband and me travel reasonably frequently.
The besan that is available in Cairo is not exactly the same that we get in India, but its manageable.
There's a guy called Nijamuddin in Khan el khalili who sells besan etc. His number is +20122639355 He also stocks some Indian masalas etc. He speaks hindi, so its easy to communicate with him. He will deliver home if its a large order. Otherwise he is on the el muizz street on the el Hussein mosque side.
We have an association for Indian women in Cairo that meets every month called Annapoorna. If u attend the meetings, then u can meet a lot of women who can help with a lot of information. Some of them have been here for over 20 years.
I also run a yahoogroup for Indians called desisinEgypt@yahoogroups.com
Its so that Indians can help each other out with information.
You can join by sending a blank mail to desisinEgypt-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
Once you are a member, you can post any questions u have on the group.
