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.

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.
