Burmese Fried Rice Recipe

Okay… maybe this isn’t “traditionally” Burmese. But, I learned how to make it from Naing Naing (who is Burmese), so therefore… it’s Burmese. Also, I’m aware it isn’t THE MOST healthy thing on this site. I generally try to avoid frying of any kind, including sauté frying, but I’m trying to end my Deprivation Diet…

Besan Disks – Dharamsala, India

Tonight I prepared Besan Disks. What are those? Well, all they are is chickpea flour, a pinch of salt, water, and honey, all mixed together in a bowl, and then dollops of the mixture are dropped into a pan with a small puddle of oil in the bottom of it. Sounds fun, right? Maybe not…
