A labor of love that is well worth the effort
If you love chickpeas and tofu, now it’s the time to try something unique! Burmese tofu nway is a classic breakfast dish in Myanmar in which soybeans are replaced by chickpea flour. When Ivy from Yangon shared this recipe, she pointed out that this delicious delicacy genuinely represents her country’s food. It is considered a traditional breakfast in every Burmese household, so it’s absolutely worth trying.
So, this dish is like a flavor party in your mouth! First up, you’ve got the chickpea paste, giving it that creamy goodness. Then, there are the rice noodles to hold everything together. And let’s not forget the show’s star – the chicken curry, bringing the savory vibes. Once the three components are ready, you top it off with a splash of soy sauce, some crushed peanuts for that satisfying crunch, and a pinch of fried garlic or onion to keep things spicy and interesting. If you want to take the Burmese tofu nway to the next level, you can toss in some chili flakes for a spicy kick. You will see, it’s kind of like tasting an adventure in your mouth!
The tofu is the breakfast champion you can find in almost every tea house and city across Myanmar. It’s the go-to quick and simple meal Burmese people grab before a busy school or work day. But here’s the cool part – people use it on special occasions as well, so it’s quite important.
According to Ivy, the magic of Burmese cuisine is the foreign influences from all around the world, but they have a fantastic way of making them their own. Once I tried Burmese tofu Nway, I realized what she was talking about. The taste of the chickpea tofu sauce is quite simple, yet it is authentic in its own way, providing you with flavors you have never tried before. I strongly suggest you give yourself the pleasure of trying something that will steal your heart!
