However, since there isn't any document such as recipes written for personal use or published in form of a cook book that gives any information on what original or traditional Bamar cuisine is the answer to this question is left to speculation. Please note that what I am writing about the Bamar cuisine is the conclusion I have personally come to after extensive and thorough research. Other peoples' research may lead to different results depending on what sources are available. I have read and heard about a royal palace book with the title 'Sâ-do-Hce'-Cân' that was - so it is said - written on palm leaves in 1866 during king Mindon Min's reign (1853 to 1878) and allegedly contains recipes. I have seriously tried to get a copy of this transcribed and in 1965 by the Hanthawaddy Press published book but did not succeed in finding one. It is said that this book contains 89 recipes but nothing is said about the kind and origins of these recipes. I do however doubt that all (if any) of these recipes are recipes of pure Bamar origin.
