Rakhine style Chicken curry

I choose Rakhine traditional chicken curry for this week. It doesn′t need oil, garlic and onion. Main ingredients are fish or shrimp paste, green chili and tamarind juice. Better serve with white rice and also can drink as soup. If you have a chance, let try for once.

Fried Salted Carp fish

Because of salty fish, you shouldn’t too much for this one. But when you eat with cooked rice it can help you to appetite your stomach. Have a nice meal and don’t forget to taste it.
