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.

Shan Noddle Salad

It is really delicious. Shan Noodle is originally come from Shan State which is the eastern part of Myanmar. Shan Noodle cooking is simple, just mix together boiled noodle, chicken curry, tomato paste, peanuts and spring onion and eat! Usually serve with vegetable pickles and fried pork rips.
