Jolokia/Ghost peppers.

A family member just got back from a culinary vacation in India & was unable to find any dried or powdered jolokia/ghost pepper. Apparently it all gets exported. So with that in mind, does anyone know where in the GTA I could find some?

                  I was at the market today & found them at House Of Spice. They have them packaged both dried and powdered. Now for some hi octane fun.

                    Yes? Hi! They have them fresh all them time now at the Loblaws at the Maple Leaf Gardens. They even had the one time the 7 pot chilis (Moruga Scorpion) which were the fresh that make the jolokia seem the not so hot.....
