Kaw Soi Dok -Burmese Noodle Salad


What I love about California other than the wonderful climate is the fact that its a melting pot of different cultures. Because of this I am able to get authentic recipes from all around the globe. A few days back a friend of my friend shared this recipe from her native Myanmar. This is the first time I am trying Burmese cuisine, though Myanmar is a neighboring country of India.
This noodle salad tastes good either hot or cold.
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon oil
1 onion sliced and fried in oil till crispy
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3 cloves of garlic
1 cube taste maker or  (1 tsp dried shrimps, pounded into floss)
1 limes, quartered
2 tbs tamarind pulp or to taste
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 tbs red chilli paste(sambal paste)or dried chilli flakes
2 tbs soysauce or fish sauce
4 hard boiled eggs
shredded cabbage,sliced deep fried tofu,scallion and bean sprouts (optional)
Method:
 Boil  fresh  or dried Chinese noodles as per instruction.Heat oil add the crushed garlic cloves  along with turmeric.Add the noodles along with all the sauces and mix well. Add a teaspoon of crispy onions,some sliced boiled eggs and cilantro.  Finally sprinkle chilli flakes and squeeze some lime juice, and mix well. It should be salty, sour and spicy. To add more zing you can add shredded cabbage,sliced  deep fried tofu,scallion and bean sprouts.

  9. I think one important ingredient; it is called chickpea powder. It is believed that chickpea powder quality determine taste of noodle salad
