  1. Hummus can be bought ready to eat in London from the groceries. But having eaten that, and making it fresh as Majula’s receipe has a lot of difference. Nothing like home made.

  4. Dear Manjulaji,

    1. Here is a list of online Indian groceries and some sites that can help you find local Indian grocers:

      Fresh curry leaves are the only way to go – for many years the only thing available in the US were the dried leaves. I did not understand the appeal of curry leaves until fresh leaves became available. They freeze fairly well though fresh leaves are always the best. Just freeze them on the stem in a ziploc bag.
