Date Night in Mandalay BBE 01/19
The distinct and delicious flavours of cooking from Mandalay, Burma...
Myanmar’s location (formerly known as Burma), wedged between India, China and Thailand produces a cuisine that’s very distinctive, with combinations of flavours not seen anywhere else. The main flavourings are dried red chilli, ground turmeric, dried shrimp, garlic and onion.
Here we’ve got a rich chicken curry, tangy tamarind aubergines, some crispy fried onion & garlic flavoured with dried shrimp known as balachaung, a simple tomato salad dressed with sesame seeds and toasted chilli flakes to add at the table. For dessert we’ve got a fantastic coconut jelly served with chilli sugared fruit. Like many Burmese meals it’s an impressive spread and one that is sure to wow your date!
