Oily Perch Fish Curry with Tomato

I would like to present oily perch fish curry as weeks special. Perch fish is more tender and delicious among freshwater fish. Fish together with tomato, green chili and celery make complete flavors and perfect meal. If you have a chance, should try it for once.

Rice Noodle Salad

In Mandalay, Rice noodle salad, “Nanlat Thote” ,is a very popular breakfast food. Three size of noodles are used in this salad; small, medium or big. Now I am using middle size noodle in this article. Gravy which includes oil, chili powder and onion mix with meat is the main ingredient of this salad. Fish ball can use instead of meat.
