Has anyone seen fresh pandan leaves for sale in Chinatown?
If so, do you remember where?
as bigjeff said curry leaves in flushing sells it (it's homemade and good, tastes just like what you get in singapore)
however, i found out that Sanur sells it in chinatown, when you walk into the ground level floor (not the basement), look in the window and they sell it. it looks right, but i haven't tried it yet since i'm still finishing my jar from curry leaves.
Fresh? Just buy a little bottle of the extract. Its sold as a green liquid in a little glass jar at most Southeast Asian groceries.
will frozen be ok? saw some beautiful specimens over the weekend; frozen yes, but looked very freshly frozen; long beautiful leaves, maybe 6-7 to a pack, sitting loosely in plastic bags.
and, what were you planning to do with them? I've always wanted to make the chicken wings where you wrap them in the pandan leaves and fry 'em.
