Sourcing Curry Leaves in Egypt

Curry leaves arent available in the general market in Egypt. A couple of Indian friends grow them in their houses here.

Sometimes when someone has a huge excess of the stuff, they may give it to the guy on Road 9 in Maadi or 26th July street in Zamalek to be sold, but these are very very rare occasions and they disappear faster than the blink of an eye.
I personally get mine from India. I dry them up and then bring them over in huge quantities. This is also the solution used by majority of the Indians in Egypt.
Curry leaves add a unique flavour to Indian dishes, these dishes wont taste the same without the leaves, but they will still taste good.
