Jeow bong

[[File:Spicy Jaew Bong Sauce with kaipen.jpg|thumb|right|Jeow bong with kaipen Thai: แจ่วบอง; rtgs: Chaeo Bong) is a sweet and spicy Thai chili paste made with Thai chilies, galangal and other ingredients commonly found in Thailand. Its distinguishing ingredient, however, is water buffalo skin.[1]

It is eaten usually by dipping Lao sticky rice or a raw/parboiled vegetable in it. It's also a condiment for a Lao riverweed snack called Kaipen. Jeow bong lasts for a long time, does not spoil easily and can be either on the spicier or sweeter side, depending who makes it. Characteristically, it is both sweet and spicy.
