Red Curry Chicken with Bamboo Shoot
Here is an authentic Thai recipe using bamboo. If you want, slice your bamboo into little matchsticks, as is common in Thai restaurants in America. Usually in Thailand the dish will be made with the sliced bamboo sold by ImportFood.com, not cut into smaller matchsticks. For a similar recipe see: Kaeng Kua Sour Bamboo Shoot with Shrimp.
