Mohinga

394

An essential part of Myanmar cuisine, Mohinga is a traditional breakfast dish consisting of fish broth with rice noodles served with split pea fritters, hard-boiled egg, fish sauce, chilli and coriander. It is considered the national dish across the country and the most popular morning choice. Generally, Mohinga is sold by street hawkers who carry a large wooden pole on their shoulders balancing various elements of the dish on either side as they go from city to city; this dish is also sold as a Yangon Brunch at street-side stalls as well as restaurants. Each bowl of Mohinga offers a completely unique and individual culinary experience in Myanmar and now you can try making it at home as well.
