Would be better if ingredients were listed - can't understand what she said and not sure if it's exotic or because of the accent / recording quality

I agree with the first poster. due to poor recording quality she is very difficult to understand. a list of ingreadiants would have been helpful without them this is not worth having on the website unless you have very good audio equiptment on your computer.

I could understand all the ingredients. I'll list them here. For quantities & method, watch closely. INGREDIENTS: Vegetable Oil; Garlic - (finely) chopped; Shallots - (finely) chopped; White Distilled Vinegar; Palm Sugar - soaked in hot water; Tamarind Paste. That's it!

She is Thai and her "accent" is typical of Thai people. I have no problem understanding her at all.
