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.

Fried spinach

As a side dish, I would like to introduce fried spinach with dried shrimp. Spinach is good for health and dried shrimp make the dish more sweeter and better taste. If you have a change try and cook one time for your family.
