In a Lao traditional meal with rice, there must be a hot chilli dipping sauce or paste known as "jeow", usually perfect with barbecue.
There are many types of jeow, but the common ones are jeow padaek and jeow bong that is made from crushing chilli peppers and other ingredients such as garlic, padaek, shrimp paste and it can last for many months.
Most Lao people grew up eating jeow and the food wouldn't taste nice without it. The good thing about jeow is that it can be eaten alone with sticky rice in times of food shortages.
Jeow is not only a unique and delightfully flavoured chilli paste, but it is a traditional Lao dish.
