No hien - Tapered bamboo shoots

Updated: Feb 19, 2021

No hien is a bamboo salad cooked with yanang extract. You can find canned yanang extract in Asian supermarkets.

For 4 people


400 g bamboo shoots

200 ml yanang extract

100 g ground pork

4 shallots, minced

3 tablespoons fish sauce

1 tablespoon unfiltered fish sauce (pa dek)

2 tablespoons ground raw glutinous rice

3 tablespoons puffed rice or toasted sesame seeds

vegetable oil


Fry the shallots in oil at 170 ° C for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain and set aside.

Line up three or four toothpicks in your fingers to form a comb and taper the bamboo shoots. Cook the bamboo shoots in salted water for 20 minutes to remove the bitterness and drain.

Brown the meat in a large saucepan with oil for 5 minutes. Add the bamboo, fish sauce, yanang extract and simmer with the lid closed for 5 minutes. Stir in the thick fish sauce after boiling.

Stir in the ground glutinous rice and cook for another 10 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 tbsps of fried shallots.

Top with remaining fried shallots and puffed rice or toasted sesame seeds before serving.
