I am happy to announce that I will be the guest hosting this month’s AWED started by Divya. You can read more about her and her easy recipes from her blog. I was always enthusiastic about the world cuisines so when I asked DK about hosting AWED, she immediately agreed. She inspires others to cook with easy and simple steps.
This month we are going to our neighboring country Burma: Golden Land of Pagoda’s. Burmese cuisine is influenced by all its neighbors, Indian, Chinese and Thailand cooking. However, Burma has its own characteristic way of cuisine preparations, distinct flavors and even variations in regional cuisines. Read more from here.
Burmese cuisine is famous for their salads which are considered as their fast foods and very poular. Beans, seafood, meat and poultry are major source of protein. Like other Asian countries, Burmese street foods are popular among the tourists as well as the locals. Common ingredients used in Burmese cooking are rice, wheat and rice noodles, glass noodles and vermicelli, potato, ginger, tomato, kaffir lime, lahpet (pickled tea), and ngapi (fish paste). Burmese dishes often use fresh fruits and vegetables.
Join me to unravel the vegetarian side of Burmese cuisine without a long flight journey, visa and jet lag. Explore the culinary adventures of the Golden Land of Pagodas (Buddhist worship place) in your little kitchen.
