Sauces In Oriental Cuisine:
Sauces form an essential part of the cuisine and come with very distinct tastes and flavours. From the enormous list of sauces in the Oriental cuisines, here are the most commonly used ones.
- There are two basic types of soy sauce, light and dark. It is also believed to be one of the oldest condiments in the world! For better results, soy sauce is to be stored in a dark and cold place.
- Dark soy sauce’s colour is achieved through the addition of caramel or molasses. It is also aged for a longer period of time, is thicker and apparently more full in flavour.
- Thick oyster sauce has two versions as well – non vegetarian and vegetarian. While the non vegetarian variant has small amounts of oyster extracts, vegetarian is made from oyster mushrooms. The latter can also be made from shiitake mushrooms.
- The use of hot and spicy schezwan chilli peppers is from where the most popular sauce derieves its name. The chillies are small in size but hold quite a lot of spiciness in them, along with a faint aroma.
