  4. Great website! Just stumbled across your video – I must say that thanks to you, I now realized why my fritters were falling apart – I’ll have to make the other half into smooth paste and mix it together – definitely have to try it next time. I browsed through your cookbook and I can’t wait to get it – it’s a keeper – esp since I love authentic Burmese food but need details on how to prepare each and every recipe that reminds me of Burma. Great job and thanks!

  5. Great site, shall send a few of my recipes to see what you think, went to school in the Shan states [years , no decades ago]. Where are the Balachaung and Gnapi Daun recipes ? Am looking forward to trying out some of your recipes . Am hoping to go back for a visit to Namtu & Bawdwin soon, when its allowed.

    1. Hi Tony
      My parents also spent some time in Namtu before I was born. My mother talks fondly about the food she ate there. Balachung and Napi daung are both in the book! There’s a vegetarian version of balachung in the blog too.

    Mingalarbar khin Byar,

    I’m tryng to make baya kyaw wiith your recipe. Look good. I’m sure it’s very good. Would that be possible to have recipe for ” wet thar doke htoe”. I saw one of the web sites. Look really nice. I ‘d like to try to cook. Thank you so much in advance. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
    Soe Naing

    1. Hi Soe Naing

    Dear Cho,
    Thank you for the Baya Kyaw recipe. We couldn’t make it right until we saw the video from your web site. It is really amazing the way you mold Baya Kyaw with spoons. Without that method, Baya Kyaw could be disaster. By the way, we would like to share the way we reduce the oil content; instead of deep frying, we baked on the cookie sheet. It works perfectly. We sprinkle the cookie sheet with oil first, laid the fritters evenly and generously sprinkle with oil on tops. Then, bake in the oven at 275-300F for about 30-35 min. When they look crispy at the bottom, broil for about 5 min. It is really wow! Now we get the Baya Phote ( Phote= Baked) 🙂

  9. Noone has left a message for quite some time, so I hope the comment board is still active…Thank You so much for the recipies. We have many chin families in our area and a few families have joined our congregation. I was looking for a traditional meal to serve at a picnic we’re having. Not only did you have the wonderful recipies, but also information (like when one would traditionally serve it..breakfast, dinner with friends-baya kyaw). I also like the idea for the baya phote, it not only is healthier but, in these hard economic times, is also less expensive because it uses less peanut oil thandeep frying. Hope you keep up the good and informative work. -Dawn

    Mingalarbar, I lived in Myanmar for several years and especially loved eating breakfast out. Though these are not specifically Burmese foods, I would love to know how to make (sorry for the spelling) ijah khwe + peh (fried bread w/ beans) and a spicy green chutney called ‘puseenay’..know what I’m talking about? Know any of the Shan style tofu dishes?

  12. this recipe is good – please give me a recipe for burmese napi

  13. I am so happy to have found the website. I had a dream of coming up with the recipes from my home country. You bet me to it and I am so glad. I can’t wait to order the book and try all the recipes. Thank you so much…
