Life in Burmese households is traditionally taking place on the floor. Chairs and beds are known and exist in households but are mostly used by old people only what goes especially for Burma's vast rural population. I hope you found my article on the Burmese cuisine and related matters interesting and instructive. I am German by birth but am living since 25 years in Burma/Myanmar. I know the country, its people, its culture and its history very well what has made me an authority on Burma. When it is about books on Burma, stick with the expert. After retiring in 2012 I turned writer and am writing books on Burma the country I am privileged to call home. Please do also see my Professional Photos and my profile. I have so far written and published four richly illustrated books on Burma. In my books I am writing extensively and detailed about the country, its people, culture, history and the life in it. The books are available as Kindle eBooks on Amazon.
Punjabi Cuisine. This Indian cuisine can be found in Punjab and it's a little similar to Mughlai cuisine from the North West frontier. These dishes are topped off with butter and ghee, which makes them even more appetizing and appealing. Some of the famous dishes are Dal Makhani (Black lentils), Tandoori Chicken, Rogan Josh and Naan. The most famous drink is lassi (buttermilk). Restaurants across India serve this cuisine and you can check this cuisine out at the renowned restaurant Punjabi by Nature in New Delhi. Kashmiri Cuisine. This cuisine is found in Kashmir, and it is influenced by cuisines from Uzbekistan and parts of Afghanistan. This Indian cuisine uses a lot of yoghurt, turmeric and mutton but the chefs cut down on the spices and onions. Some of the popular dishes are Yakhein (a yoghurt based dish with chicken), Razmah Goagi (a combination of kidney bean and turnip) and Gaad (a variety of Fish with radish). Kashmiri cuisine isn't as popular as the other cuisines, so not many restaurants serve this kind of food.
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.
