This simple dish can be whipped up very quickly. I have used wheat noodles, but you can also use any type of noodles you prefer. Most families in Myanmar will have their own version of this dish prepared using their favorite noodles. Since a lot of people do not eat meat, especially during the lent period this is a handy dish to prepare. It is wholesome delicious healthy and very satisfying.
