Bamboo shoot



Bamboo is an evergreen plant found widely in the entire northeast India. Its edible root part is called bamboo shoot. It is light yellow in colour.  I heard about canned bamboo shoot.  But in this part of India we don't require canned bamboo shoot as fresh bamboo shoots are widely available. We preserve it in airtight container for later use.

# How to cut, store and preserve bamboo shoot?

After buying from the market it's hard outer skin should be peeled off.  Now make two parts of the light yellow soft part.


Take the upper thin and soft part and make thin and long slices. Its taste is slightly bitter. But it's taste turns good once boiling.  After boiling we can consume it by making salad or we can make stir fry bamboo shoot after boiling.

 After making thin and long slices,  store it in a airtight container. Add water in it as much required.  Preserve for 3-7 days. It's taste will become sour.  Now make fish curry, pork or other recipes with this sour bamboo shoot. It can be preserved for a longer period also.  Longer the preservation time sourer the taste will be. It's got a sharp smell after preservation that can be distinguished from a distance.

Now the lower part of the bamboo shoot is little harder than the upper part. Grate with a salad cutter or use the grinder if required.  Preserve this part as the similar way as the upper part. You can make pickle with ghoost chilli with this part or make dry bamboo shoot also.

One can store bamboo shoot for a longer time by just adding water only. But prolonged preservation and its consumption is not good for health.
