Kosher Certified Wasabi Peas

  • t

Does anyone know where I can get Kosher Certified Wasabi Peas?

Wasabi peas are dried/crunchy peas covered in Wasabi. They are gaining popularity here in Texas, but I cannot find them with a kashrut symbol anywhere.

Can anyone help?

  1. There is a kosher nut and dried fruits store on the lower east side. That is the only place I have seen the wasabi peas kosher. Next time I am in there I will ask who the manufacture is.

      Here's the details on HG's good tip. I met Danny Kadouri at Kosherfest, he is sweeter than a fresh date, I'm nuts for the guy! But when's his place on Hester reopening???


      Kadouri International Foods Inc.
      234 Starr St.
      Brooklyn NY 11237
      Phone: 718-381-6100

        Thanks Guys. I talked to Danny K (super-nice guy) and he said that he was currently unable to get certified Wasabi peas.

        Any other ideas?

      2. I really don't know if these peas exsist in a kosher form but I betcha their easy to make...just dip FRESH peas in an egg white coating and roll in a mixture of fine breadcrumbs and wasabi powder. Boil peanut oil and lower into pot w/ a "spider" -- one of those cool asian cooking tools. They'll be great! Probably a lot easier than finding these things! If you really want to find the packaged one's, pose your question to the people at -- a great site that Sharon L. posted on this site recently.

            I bet you could do the same thing with the frozen fava beans available in Chinese supermarkets.

          2. dan-d-pak makes kosher asian crackers including one with kosher wasabi peas in it.

            1. Just reviving to let everyone know that Fairway has wasabi green peas certified by the O-K. It's under their private label. The 125th Street store definitely has them. I don't know about the others.

              1. Can you tell me what Fairway is or what the full name is? Do they have a website? I don't live in Ny....
