Ginger

Ginger (king in Thai) is perhaps the most recognizable and widely available of the spices used in Thai cooking, although many are surprised at the extent to which it is used. It’s sometimes ground up in curry pastes, but the most common use of ginger is as a main ingredient in light stir-fries, where the ginger is shredded into fine julienne sticks. Along with black pepper, ginger was one of the main spices used in Thai cuisine before the chili pepper arrived late in the sixteenth century.

Beef Rendang

Rendang apparently has its origins in the Minangkabau ethnic group of west Java, but it can be found all over Indonesia as well as neighboring countries. In many ways, this is a very classic Southeast Asian curry, where meat is simmered in a spicy coconut stew until the liquid is completely reduced.
