Burmese

HD 101 – Peanut Balachaung

Recipe here. This sophisticated peanut chutney is a signature Burmese dish. Not only is it affordable and addictive but it is also nutritious and keeps well. Make up a batch and add it to your salads, mix it into freshly blanched vegetables or just eat it as a snack. I learned this recipe during the Buddhist lent period when people often become vegetarians for a couple months. Balachaung is normally made with dried shrimp.
