During my visit to the Indian grocery store this evening, I was shocked to the see a three fold price increase of dhal varieties. A 8 lbs pack of toor dal which used to cost $4.99 until last month is $15.99 now !. The shop keeper informed about the ban on imports of dals from India until March 2007.

TRIVIA(from the shop keeper) :
One pound (approx 1/2 kg) of curry leaves is procured at $20 USD from wholesale market ! No wonder, just about 10 leaves are sold for a dolla..!
