A very Burmese condiment and present on most dining tables, consisting of dried shrimps, garlic, shallots dried chilli, fish sauce and paprika – lightly fried and then pound into paste of differing consistencies. Some prefer it moist but ours is dryer and quite crunchy. It’s goes fantastically with rice and Burmese curries – adding a punchy aroma, flavour kick and layer of texture. Best suited to those with a bolder palette!
