Bamboo salad – Soup Noh Mai – ซุบหน่อไม้

This is another North-eastern favorite dish of mine. This is the easier version that I had observed many people making,so I dare claim this is authentic. My friend who joins me for lunch told this taste like how her mother made it. Personally I think my grandmother’s version was best and even though I know how she made it, still I cannot repeat the touch. My grandmother version requires much more ingredients, so what I show you today the simpler one.

It is important to cook the shred bamboo shoot in the Greenish color of leave. This is a way to lessen some “poison” that will affect your rheumatic system and also it also give the pleasant smell for preserve bamboo shoot.
