On a serious note, anyone ever tried mojo ("mohho") sauce?



I've only ever seen it in the Canaries. Traditionally served with spuds that have been par-boiled in seawater and then baked, thereby acquiring a lovely crust of salt crystals, which gives the skins a nice crispy texture. The sauce itself is, as far as I can tell, mostly chili and garlic - not hugely sophisticated, but why mess with a winning formula? Well there's paprika, cumin and a few other things apparently, but it's the local chili varieties that really make it. Great stuff.

Sorry Benny! I haven't yet taken the time to read the whole thread. Which is a bit poor really, considering it's mostly photos of sauce bottles...

Surprised to see such a canonical, dare I say rockist, assortment of condiments from luka.

I fucking love the Mr Naga chili sauce, as posted by nomos. There's at least one variety (the standard one?) that has mint in it. Mint, chili and tomatoes - amazing combination. Not seen it outside of the Bangladeshi-run greengrocer's shops on Roman Road but there's a shop on Cowley Road in Oxford that might have it, will have to look next time I'm there.

The bottle of Indonesian kecap reminded me of when I lived in Holland and took my girlfriend to this great Javanese place near my flat. She looked horrified when I asked the waitress for some "ketchup"/kecap - she thought I meant the sweet red stuff from Heinz. Mild mockery followed.
