A simple 15 minute recipe that makes an excellent Thai dish.
|2||cloves garlic, minced|
|1 tsp||red pepper flakes|
|1 tsp||curry powder|
|1 can||bamboo shoots|
|1 can||light coconut milk (not coconut cream or water)|
To mince the garlic: place the garlic cloves on a cutting board, and place the flat of a large chef's knife on a clove, then hit the other side with your fist. Peal the clove (it will be easy now). Place the pealed cloves near each other on the cutting board, hold the tip of the chef's knife on the board with one hand about 3" away from the cloves, and rock the blade up and down repeatedly. The edge of the knife is always touching the cutting board, you can't possibly get cut.
