Puffed Rice / Laiyyan now available in Egypt
Just saw that Isis has started selling puffed rice - laiyyan - the base ingredient for bhel puri.
It comes in a box of 250gms for about 10LE. Saw it at the Metro on Syria street.
I didn't pick it up, because I still have my stock from home. but I can now use it more confidently and liberally since its now available in Egypt

This is a bit on the sweeter side, doesn't have the neutral taste of laiyya, but one can make do with this.
