(Mohingar) is considered to be Myanmar's National dish. It is basically a
fish broth with noodles, served with various accompaniments. It is traditionally
eaten for breakfast although it can be (and is) eaten at any time of
the day or night. Such is its popularity, that most urban centres throughout
the country have vendors who sell it ready made.
Of course, being such a common
dish, as one might expect there are many variations in the cooking. So much so,
that many of the vendors display a sign showing the chef's name and the area
from where they come thus indicating the style of Mohinga being served.
However, the basics remain the same - fish, stock and fine noodles served with a
variety of garnishes such as boiled eggs, gourd-fritters, boiled or raw shredded
green beans, fried onion and garlic and coriander leaves, though not necessarily
all together. Most Myanmar's are content with just three or four of them ,
but especially boiled egg and gourd-fritters.
The recipe can be quite
complicated, but the ones featured here are a little more simple, despite the long
list of ingredients!
