|Last of the Cassava Cake|
|Just Baked Cassava Cake|
Carolyne is a Burmese friend who posted this recipe on Facebook. I followed her recipe exactly, except that the cake did not brown sufficiently so I turned off the oven and left the cake in for an extra half an hour until it developed this lovely golden color. Thank you, Carolyne, for your inspiration and for adding another delectable dish to my Burmese food repertoire. While this cake was baking, our home was filled with a wonderful aroma!
Macapuno strings are usually sold in Asian supermarkets. You can also buy it from online stores like Amazon. But if you can't find macapuno, you can substitute with 1-1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut plus 1/2 cup water.

A quick and easy shrimp dish that is pumped with maximum flavor. It was inspired by Ma Makhemarus' Spicy Shrimp with Burmese Basil with a few adaptations. I had to substitute oyster sauce for fish sauce, cilantro for basil and green chili sauce for green chilies. Also added tomatoes and tomato paste.

This Thai-inspired fish curry uses a red curry paste along with coconut milk for its sauce. I've used only one Tbsp. of the curry paste, but it should be used according to taste. Use more if you wish the sauce to be more spicy. Any variety of fish fillets that are in season and available could be used in this dish.
