Red Shallots 200g - Hom Daeng
The preferred onions for Thai food cooking are smaller than the shallots sold in Britain. Thai shallots give a greater depth of flavour when chopped and pounded to make curry and chilli pastes, but when eaten raw in salads, are sweet and mild, leaving much less of a lingering aftertaste. Shallots are used generously and, like garlic, are a fundamental ingredient in the cuisine.
