In Thai cooking, shallots are like garlic's counterpart - it is used about as frequently as garlic.  It is always in curry paste and is sometimes eaten as a condiment, swimming in fish sauce.

When shallots are harvested and available at a good price, my mother likes to buy kilos, stocking up for the whole year!

Homm means "good smell".
