*Lime Stone Paste or Slaked Lime (Kapur Sirih) is a paste obtained by grinding sea shells in a little liquid. This is the lime which is chewed with betelnuts, gambir and tobacco. A natural mineral water made with limestone is widely used in batters for fried foods and pastries as a key ingredient that promotes crispiness. It is also used to crisp up cucumbers for pickling and vegetables for salads.

*Banana leaves is the leaf of the Banana plant.

*Pandan leaves (Pandanus Amaryllifolius) are used in Southeast Asian cooking to add a distinct aroma to rice, curry and desserts.
