Coconut Milk Powder in Brooklyn?
I've looked in several places but haven't found coconut milk powder. Do you know of a store in the general vicinity of the Slope (Sunset Park, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, or downtown) that might have it?
Thanks for your help.
re: Amy Mintzer
any asian grocery store
eg Hong Kong Market in Brooklyn's chinatown would have powdered coconut milk
also hop on the R train to grand avenue in queens and you will find tons of stores (and tons of Asian supermarkets) that would carry it.
to answer the second poster - it's good to use when you want the coconut flavor without the liquid. also good in drinks

I ended up going to a Southeast Asian market in Chinatown (Asia Market, 71 Mulberry St) and found it there.
It's used in West Indian as well as Southeast Asian recipes, as an addition to a curry for instance. Apparently you can find it pretty readily in Flatbush West Indian markets.
I'm actually using it for a cupcake recipe I found on epicurious: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
I'll let you know how it turns out!

Report on cupcakes! (Thanks again for your suggestions, by the way.) The recipe came out well, though it was extraordinarily rich; I noticed that people ate more of the other cupcakes at the party. Both the batter and the frosting contained a ton of butter. Although they had a nice, mellow coconut flavor to them, I don't think I'd make the recipe again.
I'll have to figure out some creative uses for the remaining coconut milk powder now.
