Indispensable Asian Ingredients?

QueenB | Mar 26, 2007 04:18 PM

I love to cook all types of Asian foods. I'm trying to build up my pantry for a few reasons. First, I like to have everything on hand, so I don't have to head out. Second, there aren't any Asian markets nearby for me to frequent (which is upsetting, but I deal).

I ask you...what are your most indispensable ingredients to have around the house for Asian cooking? Spices, sauces, noodles...all that sort of stuff. I cook and enjoy all different varieties of Asian foods, so give me Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Thai, etc...

Right now I have the following (and probably more I'm forgetting)
Soy sauce
Kecap Manis
Oyster sauce
Fish sauce
Ginger
Garlic
Wasabi
Rice
Cardamom
Cloves
