Food in Myanmar

Plum soup and toasted dried fish

Sour plum soup, Myanmar traditional food is cooked with ripe sour plum and toasted fish. Myanmar people used to cooked this soup during winter time (November to January) because the plum getting ripe during this season. We usually eat this plum soup with bowl of hot rice together with fried dried fish. I prepare toasted dried snake head fish with peanut oil. The dish is very delicious and I hope you and your family will also like it.

Wintermelon Salad

This is a very special salad. Although Myanmar people usually cook water melon as a soup with pork or chicken, but I going to make a salad with grilled prawn, lime juice, green chilli and grinded pea nut. Strong taste of hot chilli and fresh lime juice is mix together with medicinal water melon.
