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.

Pork Ribs with Winter Melon Soup

Although Myanmar people used more oil then western countries, this dish used less oil than usual. You can serve this dish as a soup or can also eat as a main dish with rice. Pork ribs with sweet winter melon cook in balance to get incredible flavor.
