Kaeng Hed Phor

I don’t know the name of this type of mushroom in the English language. It is called Hed Phor in Lao language. I love to eat this mushroom as a little kid living in Vientiane, Laos. My mother often added in Bamboo Shoot Soup or made a soup out of it with fish. The mushroom doesn’t look pretty but very delicious with its juice pops out when you take a bite.
