There are different types of mohinga in different regions of Myanmar. Rakhine mohinga has more fish paste and a little sauce. The ingredients are subject to availability, but standard dishes come from southern Myanmar where more fresh fish are available.

Each village and town has local wisdom and the main ingredients of the original mohinga are ground beans or crushed mashed rice, garlic, onions, lemongrass, banana tree trunks, ginger, fish paste, fish sauce and catfish in rich broth cooked and boiled in a cauldron over a fire.

Variations elsewhere are served with rice vermicelli, fish sauce, lime juice, crispy fried onions, cilantro, leeks, crushed dried chilli and optional extras are beans or pumpkin, boiled eggs and fried fish pie. Mohinga is also produced in instant foods in dry packaging.

Mohinga has an early history as a breakfast that is sold in the morning or on an open air stage show in the evening. Traders began to emerge in the 1960s and some of them set up networking stalls that made mohinga available throughout the day.

The four most popular types of freshwater fish to prepare the most original Burmese soups are Asian stinging catfish (Heteropneustes fossilis), walking catfish (Clarias batrachus), spotted snakehead (Channa punctata) and blue tilapia (Oreochromis aureus).

The national standard recipes are fish, rice flour, chopped garlic, fresh chopped ginger, chopped garlic, vegetable oil, turmeric, peppers, lemongrass, dashi powder and fish sauce. Then added rice noodles, chopped cilantro, split boiled egg, lime and crushed red pepper.

Burmese cuisine is heavily influenced by neighboring countries, including China and India, which is the reason why the smell of mohinga reminiscent of the cuisine of the two countries as one of the great oriental cultural marriages in Southeast Asia.

El Paraíso

The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.



The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
