Fried Bamboo Worms

Bamboo worms, also known as bamboo bees and bamboo maggots, refers to a kind of parasitic insect living in bamboo tubes. Their principal food is fresh bamboos. They will hide at the root of bamboo tubes after eating up the whole bamboo. They will become fat and stop to eat in November, which is the best season to eat bamboo worms, because the worms will become pupae later. All the Hani ethnic group, Zhuang ethnic group and Bouyei ethnic group like to eat bamboo worms and good at catching them. If the top of bamboos become yellow, they will slice the bamboo cane to catch bamboo worms. Bamboo worms are very delicious after frying. They have high protein content and is a delicious dish to go with wine.
