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.
