Indonesian soy sauce
In Indonesia, soy sauce is known as kecap (also ketjap or kicap), which is a catch-all term for fermented sauces, and cognate to the English word "ketchup". Five main varieties of Indonesian kecap exist:

Kecap manis is a flavoured sweet soy sauce, which has a thick, almost syrupy consistency and a pronounced sweet, treacle-like flavour due to generous addition of palm sugar. In cooking, it may be replaced by molasses with a little vegetable stock stirred in. Recipe here
