  1. Sue, do you mean the 'round' coconut reaming device? And whereabouts are you?

      Yes I do and I am in Coffs Harbour NSW but happy to buy on line if I can. Thank you for replying

    2. I am certain I have seen them in the bigger Indian food stores out in Harris Park (Sydney)

        Thank you, should have mentioned I don't live in Sydney (anymore) but in Coffs, but would be happy to buy on line if I could...found only one on ebay in England, but P&P too expensive. Thank you for your reply.

          All the Indian supermarkets I go to have them, but I am in Melbourne.

            Try calling them up - they are really nice and helpful, I am certain they can send you one:
            Patel Bros
            Shop 3, 85-87, Marion Street,
            Harris Park,NSW-2150,
            Phone: +61 2 9642 6655
            Fax: +61 2 9642 6633

        2. Hi Sue, I have seen them advertised online. 'Poh's Kitchen' had a forum asking the same question - I'd have a look at some of their suggestions:

          I think it's something that is going to need a bit of hunting; I haven't found one in the Asian shops near me :( I may have to see if they can order one in.

            I had looked on Poh's kitchen did see one there rather expensive when P&P were added, not to worry I will keep looking...who knows perhaps a few of the on-line kitchen shops will get the message and stock them...thank you for your kind help :-)

              Good luck suetrees! Let us know if you manage to track one down.

              You need somewhere with a Southern Indian/ Sri Lankan bias.
