My two aunts made Khua Mie ( Fried Noodles ) and Nhem Khao ( Laotian Crispy Rice Salad ) for lunch in Vientiane, Laos. I didn’t want to stuff myself with the Fried Noodles and went for a plate of Nhem Khao. It was delicious with plenty of fresh herbs and vegetables and now and then I took a bite out of roasted chili peppers for the extra kick to the meal.
I still don’t know how to make Nhem Khao yet. It was a surprise for me to come home that day and saw the food all prepared and I didn’t get a chance to watch how it was made so I can take photos and make a video tutorial for Nhem Khao.
