Chances are that the food that you enjoy on picnics at home or in the parks is already among your favorites. I can think of many dishes that you love to have for lunch or dinner, such as rice, curry, or minced pork rice with vegetables. Today, I will share with you a great recipe that I learned from one of my customers in my restaurant. It is a delicious bowl of rice, with a touch of seafood and the sweetness of coconut milk.

As the weather warms up and people start to fire up their BBQs, many will be looking for the best bok Kapi to make it a great day. Here I try and provide you with some ideas on what to include, what to avoid, and some of the best places to get bok Kapi in Phnom Penh.

There are few things more Khmer than bok Kapi, a rice and noodle dish that’s a simple but delicious way to use up leftover rice or noodles.  It’s common to make it with egg noodles (known as tiet maek), pork, and herbs and vegetables.

This Khmer picnic meal, also known as bok Kapi, is popular in Asian nations, particularly Cambodia. It’s simple, tasty, and simple to prepare at home. Cucumber, long beans, Thai eggplant, and, most all, young green tamarind and green mango.


2 tbsp. kapi wrapped in foil and grilled or baked till brown    
1 cup dried fish, pre-heated in the oven    
4 garlic cloves    
4 shallots cloves    
1/4 cup soaking dried shrimp, rinsed and put aside    
4 red Thai chilies    
You decide on the sugar, lime juice, and msg.    
1 tablespoon toasted peanuts (optional, but I don’t mind)    
2 tablespoons of frying oil    

Directions for making bok (Khmer picnic meal). Kapi

  1. Add oil to a frying pan and reduce the heat to medium low.
  2. Fry the garlic, shallots, and chilies until they are brown (but not burned). let to cool for a while
  3. To make a paste, pound the dried shrimp and dried fish in a mortar pestle.
  4. Then add the garlic, shallots, and chilies (and peanuts if using) to the mixture.
  5. After pounding to a paste, add the grill. Kapi pound it very well, stirring it with a spoon as you do to ensure that all of the flavors come together.
  6. Adjust the flavor by adding msg, sugar, or lime juice to taste.

While laboring in the fields, Cambodian farmers prepare bok kapi, which they consume with cold rice and a variety of vegetables for dipping.

Please have pleasure in it.
