Potato Vada

Wheat Stocks
RU and UA account for a third of the world's wheat exports. If the ccoflict between them drags on, wheat suppies could face a shortfall and/or sky-high prices. France is already planning a food voucher sytem for this contingency. Locally, the following wheat products could be impacted: bread, roti prata/canai, chapati, naan, wheat noodles (mee, ramen, instant noodles), pasta, cakes, buns, cookies etc. There is a fallback carbo: rice, so nasi lemak, laksa, idlyll, thosai, meehoon, kway teow can still be had.
