The next question I had to find an answer to was to what extent the 'Burmese' cuisine is influenced by the cuisines of neighbouring countries. This was particularly important to me because many Burmese and particularly Bamar are not getting tired of earnestly claiming that 'their cuisine?' remains traditional and unique. However, the result of my research says otherwise. It is clear beyond doubt that the 'Burmese' cuisine is to a large extent influenced by mainly the Indian and Chinese cuisine; and this not only in the border regions but across the entire country and not only marginally but substantially. For instance, the by Burmese as delicacy regarded 'Danbauk Htamin' (rice with chicken or mutton) is actually an Indian dish with the original name Biryani. As a matter of fact some Indian dishes and foods such as the in Burma very popular breakfast dish Htamin kyaw (fried rice) or Chin Tha Ye Thee (mango pickle) or Halawa (sticky rice with butter and coconut milk) are assimilated into 'Burmese' cuisine to such an extent that many Burmese do not even know that these are of Indian origin and instead believe they are original Burmese, which of course is wrong.
Indian cuisine has a number of versatile dishes with a lot to offer to the masses and these dishes can your taste buds tingling for a long time. When we think of the Indian cuisine, we usually think of aromatic dishes peppered with herbs and spices, and that thought is usually right. The Indian cuisine is definitely known for its strong taste and strong aroma because of the variety of herbs and spices that they use on their dishes. The Indian cuisine also varies from one region to another. This is because there have been a lot of factors that helped shape the evolution and history of the Indian cuisine, depending upon the region as stated above. The normal diet consists of meat, usually game meat, and they also make use of fruits and vegetables. The use of spices had long been used in Indian cuisine, and this can be traced back to about 3,000 BCE. When religions like Buddhism and Hinduism grew in India, vegetarianism became prevalent and flourished. In fact, the prohibition of eating beef became the longstanding characteristic of Hinduism, and this practice is still going on even to this present day.
The Indian techniques and methods of cooking can be traced back to about 5,000 years ago. It has been shaped by the land as well as the produce that comes from a specific region; thus, there are varying regional Indian cuisines. Aside from this, their religion has also greatly influenced their cooking. Another factor that significantly influenced the Indian cuisine is the traders as well as the travelers that pass through the region. They leave behind new cooking methods as well as new dishes and new ingredients that the locals incorporate into their cooking. The rulers who ruled also influenced Indian cuisine. But what is most fascinating is that the identity of the original Indian cuisine never got lost. In fact, it has retained its uniqueness, and all those influences only enhanced the cuisine and made it richer.
