What is "ma thay"? That's what they call water chestnuts in the north? I only know them by the name "củ năng".

Must be the northern name, FB.

Hi,

I read your site on a regular basis and enjoy it a lot. So as I am upheaving and changing my own blog, I have added a link to your site from mine.

If you do not want that link please let me know and I will get rid of it.

Please read through my blog if you wish, and any constructive criticism is always welcome

Yours

Dave

I'm not sure either. I come from Hanoi, and mom told me it is "củ năng" too.

Thao

ưell, I remember just now, they also call it "củ mã thầy"

Sticky

Glad that's sorted out, Thao. I'm bowing to your superior knowledge of Vietnamese!

In Sichuan they are called ma ti, 'horse hooves' I used to avoid ordering anything with this on menus because I thought they were the real thing : )

I completely love water chestnut. Arguably what i miss the most about Hanoi.

Sticky

Pepper - that's a strange name. I bet they are used in many ways in Sichuan cuisine.

Trang - where in the world are you?
