The “super rotten” dish that few people dare to try of the Northwest people

 The rotten buffalo skin dish of the Thai people in the Northwest makes not everyone dare to try, but this is a specialty for those who like to discover “unique” flavors.

Rotten buffalo skin, also known as dung min, is a typical dish of the Thai people in the Northwest. The raw material to make this dish is buffalo skin. After preliminary processing, buffalo skin is wrapped in banana leaves and incubated for about two days depending on weather conditions. 

In summer weather, high temperatures make buffalo skin “rotten” faster. In the winter, people have to incubate for a few more days before taking it out for processing.

It is known that in addition to rotten buffalo skin, the Northwest highlanders are also famous for their kitchen buffalo skin. Buffalo skin keeps the kitchen for many months but still retains its characteristic taste, especially sweetness, accompanied by the strange aroma of wood clinging to the skin.
