PART 2: MAKING BURMESE TEA LEAF SALAD
Once I have my Burmese fermented tea leaves ready, I am itching to put together my version of Laphet Thoke, an iconic Burmese dish that’s widely available from street side stalls to high end restaurants in Myanmar (formerly Burma). Llight and fresh, it’s easy to put together and is the perfect summer salad.
Note: This is part 2 of Burmese tea leaf salad recipe of combining the fermented tea leaves with other ingredients to make the salad.
Sweetheart cabbage, finely chopped
2 red peppers, finely chopped
Cherry tomatoes, halved
White sesame seeds
Black sesame seeds
Fried crispy onions
Dried roasted peanuts, crushed
Fermented tea leaves (watch recipe here)
