Burmese Cooking

Posted in Food at 1: 11 pm by MK

A coworker of mine just faxed me some information on Burmese cooking, including some delicious sounding recipes. 

From the intro. page:

The food of Burma reflects the influences of her many neighbors, especially the two largest, China and India.  China’s influence can be seen in the use of noodles and soy sauce, while Burmese curries are Indian in origin, though not highly spiced.  They are flavoured with lots of garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli, onion and shrimp paste and served with bowls of home-made chutneys and pickles.  Bowls of piping hot rice are served at every meal, though unlike in other Asian countries, the rice is boiled not steamed until moist.

The recipes range from:  Coconut Prawn Curry to Fish Soup with Noodles.  I might (or rather my husband the cook might) have to give these a try!

Thanks, Tom.
