Shan-Style Cauliflower Curry

This is a quick and easy Shan-style curry dish that you can prepare in under 15 minutes. Popular in Myanmar, Dan and I enjoyed this dish several times, mostly in Shan State. You can tweak the recipe to your taste, adding in more variety  of vegetables or spices. Here I have left the recipe as in – because it is so simple and delicious on its own.

Recipe is taken from Mr.Min’s Cooking Class Recipe Book: An Introduction to Shan Cuisine, that was given to us in Inle Lake, Myanmar during our cooking class.
