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.

Spicy Fried Green Tamarind

This dish is usually served together with main course. In Myanmar tradition course, there is no appetizer server before main course. Appetizer is served as a side dish in the main course. As it named, this dish is with strong taste in sour, hot and also hot.
