There are 10 food to try in Myanmar
Like most Southeast Asian countries, Myanmar's dining and food stands specialise in a unique meal or gastronomic theme. We have selected these 10 Burmese meals and treats for a complete kitchen tast. Probably Burma's most famous food is lephethand - fermentations. Acid leaf is consumed individually, usually as a desert, but also as lephettes, a marinated leaf lettuce.
For the preparation, the slightly acidic, slightly bitterness of leaves are blended by hands with chopped kale, chopped tomato, crisp fry green coffee ground coffee ground coffee grounds, a dash of olive and pepper flakes, a dash of chilli and clove. It can be used in many ways. This can be a takeaway, an appetiser or, together with a bowl of paddy biscuits, a dinner.
It is also regarded as a stimulant: The Burmese says that too much leprosy can stop Lephethoke from sleeping. Ingredients of nitrogen: curcuma risotto and seafood. In Burma known as shan htamine (fish rice), this shan (one of the most important Buddhist ethnical groups in the country) is a combination of curcuma boiled and crushed into a slice with a coating of fresh water fishing and olive nutmeg.
Oiled and piquant, with leeks, raw gloves of apple and baked pig rind, it becomes a savoury and piquant delicacy. Tasty Burmese sourdough. Visiting a Burmese tradition is more than just a dinner, it's a gastronomic one.
Like the name says, it' s the main ingredient, but once you've decided on one thing - usually a fleshy, slightly greasy mixture of curries around pig meat, seafood, prawns, veal or lamb - there is a series of side to it. This includes paddy sauce, a cake lettuce, a small meal with roasted vegetable, a small basin of broth and a large serving plate of grilled and semi-cooked vegetable and herb to eat with various sauces.
In a Muslim run trattoria, the broth could be a mixture of lentil and roots, while the sides could contain some crunchy papier-mâché. When it all happens, you'll be confronted face to face with a variety of meals containing all the Myanmar flavours, texture and mix.
When you are done, you will also receive a Burmese tradition sweet - a lacquered tablet with inlaid tealeaves and walnuts or a glass of coconut. It also serves as a crashworthy course on various Myanmar kitchens - courts that often mirror the shopkeeper's ethno.
Burmese people run teashops, which are good places to dive into the Burmese tradition of pasta and traveling, such as Htamine Toka, a kind of rissalad. Southeast Asian flavoured snack foods such as steams or armi (fried bred sandwiches with potatoe curry) or sandwiches such as nandbya (naan) are usually offered in Indian/Muslim teashops.
Chinese teashops often offer fried candy, fleshy, stewed rolls and thin, buzz-like articles. An exquisite Burmese pancakes. In contrast to the cakes in the West, Burmese candy, together known as "mounts", is not eaten as a desert, but as a snack, usually eaten with a cup of coffee in the early hours or in the afternoons.
Unlike candy elsewhere in Southeast Asia, the mountains are usually not packaged with sugars, but get their delicious taste from the use of flavours such as shredded coir, dried coir, riceflour, cooked glutinous rices, tappioca and fruits. Burmese stand-out candy includes chinese pastries, small crumbles of crumbled grains of grains of flour containing coir milks, grapefruit and raisin; and leg mount and mount pyit thicket, Burmese pastries, either sweetened or savoury, with a moist, hole-like texture that is not dissimilar to that of an British crepe.
It' a little bit of eggroller. Burmese are obsessed with food that has been fryed in olive oils - in Myanmar it is virtually not possible to do so. Most of the snack on the streets or in teashops - steamsas, eggrolls, bean cakes, candies, bread - are baked, and many pasta meals are baked with freshly baked, crunchy side orders.
A particularly worthwhile fry meal is Buthi-Kyaw, crushed and deep-fried pumpkin pieces. The thin, crispy dough hides a smooth, slightly aqueous pumpkin inside, and the brittle is usually accompanied by a sour-sweet dipping of soda bark, which can be piquantly prepared with beans.
The most extraordinary meal in Myanmar is hto-hpu nwe, or" hot tofu". "In connection with the Shan tribe in the north of Myanmar, the meal does not actually contain anything like a bean curd, but a thick mush of chickpeasmeal. Glutinous yeasty things are topped with thin pasta, pieces of pickled chickens or pigs.
It is covered with a rain of chilli and contains sides of marinated vegetables and stock. The Burmese like" dry" pasta meals - mainly pasta salad with stock as a side dish - and perhaps the most tasty and omnipresent is the Nangyi-Thoke. It consists of thick, round pasta with chickens, thinly sliced fishbread, semi-cooked beans shoots and sliced hard-boiled beans.
Season with a mix of fried garlic and curcuma and chilli oils, thrown by hands and dressed with vegetables and a saucer. It is often referred to as Myanmar's main course because of its rich vegetable stock of fresh seafood and shallots. Myanmar's informal nationwide food is Mahinga - delicious, round pasta cooked in a savoury vegetable stock of freshly boiled fillet of freshly caught sunflower and shallots, often accompanied by the crispy pulp of the Banananda.
It is a popular plate for breakfasts, but is available from handy retailers and a popular treat at any hour of the morning or evening. The topping can be a slice of hard-boiled eggs and kyaw, crunchy vegetables and/or slices of lentils. Season with a pinch of lemon and/or dry chilli beans.
Myanmar Shan state is known for its pasta. The most common Shan State food is this thin, shallow pasta in a clear, spicy soup of chickens or pigs, topped with fried seeds and a dash of olive butter. It will be accompanied by a side of pickles.
It is relatively easy to make with most Burmese pasta meals, bordering on tasteless but calming and thoroughly delectable. A" dry" variant, with the stock on the side, is also used.
