3 Add fish sauce to taste and lots of roughly chopped mint leaves. Taste?and season with salt and freshly ground pepper if necessary. Add more soy or fish sauce if?needed.
4 Serve with plain boiled rice.

Burmese avocado juice
The Burmese love this refreshing drink???they enjoy the texture?(thick and gloopy), but you can add a?little extra water if you’d prefer a lighter texture – it’s so easy and delicious.

2 ripe avocados
375ml (13 fl oz) water
100ml (3? fl oz) condensed milk
100ml (3? fl oz) evaporated milk
