“I discovered this simple yet healthy and warm soup during my travels to Myanmar, a nice contrast to the many types of curry dishes that are served there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy as a starter for dinner or indulge as a main dish! Want to see your own recipe published on Kitchen Stories? Send it to community@kitchenstories.com.”
