#3 -- I've been looking for more ways to use this. Love the flavor.

No. 3 -I always have this lurking in my fridge. It is a favourite as is with Hoisin Sauce.

That should read "as is Hoisin Sauce". My typo has got me thinking that I must try using both in a recipe!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend - we have sunshine!!!


3. Love this sensational flavour!

#3 - I've never used it but now I'm really curious.


#3. Alas, I don't have it, but I must get some and try it

#3, and thanks for reminding me to get some!

#3, and I don't have it in my pantry, unless you count its presence in a prepared Pad Thai sauce.

3. I love this flavor but I never cook with it. Need to work on that. And I do have some in the fridge.


I love this flavour! One of our favourite ways to use it is in puliyinji (sp???), a fabulous chutney made with curry leaves, ginger and the mystery ingredient.

I think the ingredient would be in the Penang style baked chicken.

#3!! and I guessed it correctly but I only know of it thru your post about it! Although it is sold in many forms in the many diverse markets I frequent I have never had to guts to buy and try any...yet.

3, and we always have some in our fridge to use when making something deliciously Malaysian like daging masak hitam.
