Searching for Balinese ingredients

Teknotic | Jan 9, 2011 01:19 PM

I just got a Bali cookbook, and now the search must begin for these ingredients that I haven't seen anywhere before. After a thorough search of my nearest Asian grocery store (HT Oaktree), these are the things I'm still trying to locate :

Banana flower (aka banana blossom)
Banana heart / ares / banana trunk
Benzoin
Calamus
Cassumunar ginger / bangke ginger
Cincau jelly
Ginger buds / wild ginger flower / torch ginger
Kaffir limes (the actual fruit, not the leaves - those are easy to find)
Klungah
Leprous lime
Lime solution / lime paste / limestone powder
Lombok chilis
Long pepper
Pindang water
Salam leaf / Indonesian bay leaf
Water spinach
Winged bean

Any help would be appreciated
