Shallots are another fundamental spice in Thai cooking. They are equal to, or perhaps even more important than garlic. Shallots are something of a cross between onions and garlic. Thai shallots are sweet, yet still have the punch of garlic to them. They're also red in color, which explains why the direct translation of the Thai name hom daeng is "red onion." Like onions, they have concentric layers, although usually only three or four.
