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.
In India, food is most often eaten without cutlery, using instead the fingers of the right hand. Eating with your hands is considered important in Indian etiquette because a person eating with his hands knows the exact temperature of food before the morsel hits his mouth thus preventing blisters in mouth due to consumption of hot food Traditional serving styles vary from region to region in India. A universal aspect of presentation is the thali, a large plate with samplings of different regional dishes accompanied by raita, breads such as naan, puri, or roti, and rice. In South India, a cleaned banana leaf is often used as a hygenic and visually interesting alternative to plates. Indian cuisine is famous the world over with its distinguishing sophisticated use of spices and herbs. Indian cuisine is strongly influenced by widespread and longstanding vegetarianism within sections of India's majority Hindu and Jain communities. Very integral to the Indian culture is the Indian cuisine and love of food amongst its vast population, cuisines differ according to community, region, and state. Indian cuisine is delightfully unique with a great variety of foods, spices, and cooking techniques, each with its distinct taste. Each religion, region, and caste has left its own influence on Indian food.
It is, however, not only complete dishes that the Indian cuisine has introduced in to the Burmese cuisine. It has also given the traditional Burmese cooking style an Indian touch by having Burmese women and cooks use Indian condiments such as Masala (curry powder) what is traditionally not used in Burma. And here the story does not end, the introduction of milk, butter and dairy products such a cheese, yoghurt and sour milk as well as the drinking of black tea with milk and sugar (surprised?) are additional ways in which Indians have influenced the Burmese cuisine. The Chinese have ensured their presence in the Burmese cuisine in two ways. One way was to introduce Chinese-style cooking into Burmese households and restaurants by using previously not known, lesser used or differently combined vegetables such as celery and Chinese cabbage, fungus such as Chinese mushrooms, sauces such as oyster sauce and other things such as bean curd (tofu). The other way in which the Chinese have carved out their place in the Burmese cuisine is Chinese dishes such as Peking-baigin (Peking duck), Kawpyan-kyaw (Spring Rolls) and Pausi (Chinese dumpling). Chinese cooking style, Chinese vegetables, etc. and dishes have become integral part of the Burmese cuisine.
