    If you are worried about getting rice avoid supermarkets and head to a Chinese/Indian or comparable food store. My local supermarket is out of rice, the chinese supermarket across the road has bags full, and the Indian food store 10 minutes walk away (at the end of my street) has it piled floor to ceiling. The only issue is that you'll have to buy 5kg or more. ;-)

    My local supermarket put a pallet of canned red beans near the front today. By the time i got there it was halfway gone, and normally about no one buys that stuff here.

    I kinda cheated on the empty rice shelf and grabbed the couscous next to it. Half the stock that they still had, enough for daily meals for two weeks.

    Check out Asian stores, Indians/Paks/Bangladeshis. No problem here till now. My parents haven't witnessed food crisis or food crisis generated from another crisis. If situation goes south, I'll start stockpiling rice, pulses, salt, oils, soybeans and whatever else is needed.

    Onion pakora recipe:

    Onion - 2 medium sized (sliced finely)
    Green chillies - 4 medium length (slit vertically, then cut into small pieces)
    Cilantro - a handful (sliced finely)
    Black salt - to taste (helps in digestion), can use ordinary white salt too
    Black pepper - 1 tea spoon
    Corn flour - 4 table spoon
    Wheat flour - 1 table spoon

    Mix everything in a bowl with a little water first. Add more water, if needed. Should be a thick batter.

    Heat any neutral oil.

    Make small portions with hand & deep fry until golden brown. Enjoy the lockdown!!!

    Okay, everything is related. Pregnant ladies are advised not to eat pineapple or raw papaya, as there are chances they might trigger miscarriage. In small quantities, those might be okay, but here in the sub-continent, pregnant ladies do not eat them at all.
