This is an authentic Burmese dish taught to me by a friend. It is absolutely lovely served ladled over hot egg noodles. If you cannot find balachaung, a Burmese condiment, you can try making your own.
Balachaung is a Burmese condiment made from dried prawns. It is essential to this dish and can be purchased at some Oriental grocers in block form. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge or freezer.
