Steamed Bamboo Parcels ( Hor Moag Nor Mai Yanang )


Classic Isan food - cheap, simple and made from easy to find ingredients with plenty of flavour. Well that's the idea, but in practice you may find difficulty getting hold of Yanang Juice (sold in tins in the asian grocer). After several rich dishes, a classical north Thai dish cleanes the taste buds.

500 gms Bamboo (Boiled or Tinned)
220 ml Yanang Juice
3 Tablespoons Old Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
5 Chillies
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Lemon Grass
Banana Leaves

1. Grate the bamboo into fine strips, add the yanang juice, old fish sauce, and fish sauce.
2. IN a Thai mortar, pound the garlic, chillies and lemon grass together to break them up. Add the bamboo and continue pounding.
3. Cut the banana leaves into 8x15 cm pieces, about 6 pieces is good enough for this recipe.
4. Spoon the bamboo into the banana leaves, fold them up into a parcel and staple or tie them.
5. Steam for 5 minutes.
6. Serve with sticky rice.
