I am going to be cooking from a book called Cradle of Flavor in May (recipes from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore) for Cookbook of the Month on the Home Cooking board here at chow. So I'm wondering where in/around Providence I can find some of the more elusive ingredients, like kaffir lime leaves, galangal, star anise. I think the Asian market on Broad Street carries some of this (lemongrass, at least) or perhaps the Indian grocery on Hope Street.
But I wonder if there's another spot I might check? Cranston, Warwick, Seekonk all fine, anywhere near Providence. Thanks for any and all tips!
