  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • ½ cup chicken stock

  1. If using fresh bamboo shoots, remove the tough outer skin and cook in boiling water with the red peppers for 40 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat the oil to 180°C/350°C. Add the bamboo shoots and deep fry until the edges turn yellow. Drain and cut into slices.
