Bottle gourd sour soup

Today, I’m going to share another irresistible and lip-smacking Burmese sour soup recipe. One thing I like about our Burmese dishes is that most of the ingredients needed are inexpensive. Also these dishes are reasonably quick and simple to prepare. 

Main Ingredients
1. Cut and sliced bottle gourd into smaller pieces.
2. Cut and sliced the tomatoes.
3. Garlic, peeled and sliced 
4. Tamarind water
5. Dried shrimps
6. Burmese shrimp paste ( Ngapi )

Heat oil in the cooking pot. Add small amount of turmeric powder. Sauté the garlic. Add in the shrimp paste and stir well. Add a little bit of water and stir. Then add the dried shrimps and continue to stir for about a minute. 

Now add in the the bottle gourd and tomatoes. Give it a stir until the vegetables are just tender. 

Add 4 small bowls of water and give it a quick stir. Cover with the lid and let it boil for about 8-10 minutes over a medium heat.

 Add tamarind water to the boiling soup.

Stir briefly, cover with the lid and bring to boil for another 8-10 minutes.
Seasons to taste and its done.
