Shopping for My "Spiral Road" Indonesian Menu

This Month's Film: The Spiral Road
Cuisine: Indonesian

Shopping for my 'Spiral Road' Indonesian menu was relatively easy, since I already had many of the spices on hand. I was able to buy all of the fresh ingredients at my local market, but I did have to make a special trip to Cost Plus for a jar of Sambal Ulek. And I never did manage to find any tressi shrimp paste, and I couldn't think of a suitable substitute, so I had to omit it from my recipes.
