China/HX specific: Ingredient/sauce/paste/spice/herb

Amin (London Foodie ''OrientRice@aol.com'') | Oct 13, 2005 05:11 AM

I need some serious and quick help here please. Am requiring to know about SE Asian ingredients, preferable specially from around Hong Kong or China.

Something that you use a lot of or regularly whether it is a sauce, ingredient, paste, herb or spice, as long as it has a fairly decent shelf life and is ambient .

Am also researching these boards further, however some clues I have located are as under ( I know some of these may not meet the desired criteria) :

Xiao hong dou sha - red bean paste
Xiao long bao (Chinese soup dumplings ) ?
Pomegranate paste (frequently used in Persian cooking)
Rice paper / Edible paper
Szechuan pepper (Xanthoxylum piperitum)
Tamarind / paste
Ginseng

your input on this one will be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
