Ingredients for soup:
1.5 cups sour bamboo shoot sliced
1 cup large shrimps
2.5 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoon salt
2.5 cups water

Method
Heat the wok, add the yellow curry paste mixture with 1/2 cup of water to help dissolve the paste. Stir until combinee then add the rest of the water and cover let cook until it boils.  Add shrimps and bamboo, cover and bring to a boil. Season with salt, sugar and lime juice then taste (some bamboo is very sour, some not too sour depending on brand, but you should always rinse it first to remove some of the bite).  Fix the taste to the way you like then let it boil for another 5 more minutes.  Serve while hot with cooked jasmine rice.   Enjoy!

This was a great video. It is so reflective of what great dishes Thai cooks create. I have been to Thailand and the ingredients are always fresh and the spices out of this world. It would be wonderful if the U.S. imported some of the wonderful fruits from Thailand. Thanks for the informative videos.
