Where to find Indian grocery? : Online Indian food stores and elementary price comparison Guide
So as you know finding raw Indian food stuff like spices, ready-to-eat mix, dal, Indian long rice, veg stuff, halal stuff etc. is not easy to find everywhere in Tokyo (let’s not even get started if you live in remote island off Hiroshima). Until long time back (just till the start of my third month after course commencement last year) I used to think doing PhD would a cakewalk and as an afterthought I had too much time at my hands. Amongst various things I did, this is one such stuff. Sifting through various online Indian food portals trying to find the best deals (which exist nowhere beyond BigBazaars as I found).
So you have here some price comparison based off websites: Indojin, India@home, Ambika, Mayabazar, Baticrom and Green Nasco. My preference for rotis and parathas is bang on top followed by comparison of dry-fruits which ridiculously expensive elsewhere in Japan. Amazon prices have been excluded because Indian sellers over there seem to live in a lala land with no tab on real prices. So this list is in no way exhaustive or indicative, just suggestive.
If you find more suitable comparisons, more online shops or anything to add, just share it in the comments below. Since I wish this Guide to be crowdsourced, you can edit or add something in the file itself too.
As for Phd, it is learning how to moonwalk not cakewalk.
