  1. This is awesome! Definitely a quicker way of making it, and In small portion.My makes this Kapoon, with different meats and it takes way longer. Every time she makes it, you would think she is feeding an army.

  2. Finally a simple version of how to make it! My Lao family never taught me how to make it even when I asked them to teach me lol. It was always already made when I go to maetao's house. Thanks! New sub! ດີຫຼາຍ!

  3. There has got to be a better way for these delicious dishes to be healthier and cleaner. Until then small amounts of moderation will do.

  4. Over the years, I have developed a serious love for southeast Asian food, and I really want to try khao pun, since it has been noted (at least in "Southeast Asian Food" by Rosemary Brissenden…I LOVE that book) cookbook as the national dish of Laos. I have never had Lao food, and Lao food seems a bit under-represented in her book, and I have learned about SO many other Lao dishes (not described in her awesome book) through your channel that I definitely want to try and make one day! I have one question that is driving me CRAZY, though. I am really looking around everywhere for an awesome mortar and pestle, and yours looks like what I consider my current ideal. Where did you get it? Do you know a brand/manufacturer that makes exactly THAT type? If so, I'd greatly appreciate a link! I've found some similar ones, but yours look like EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Please help, and also please keep making your awesome videos! You definitely seem like a beautiful person, both inside and out, and I appreciate your newfound love for your culture and its cuisine, and thank you for sharing that enthusiasm (and the deliciousness) with the world! :D
