Old Recipe Salad,Savoury

Burmese inspired grapefruit salad

Last year a visit to Mumbai with my parents brought me to a cute little restaurant in the Fort area called Burma Burma. Traveling with my parents usually ends up being more like a school field trip – I get ice cream, good food, presents and more often than not a lecture about something! Needless to say, the food and ice cream make up for a lot!

At Burma Burma, with every imaginable type of tea and more adorning the menu, they also serve authentic and mouth-watering array of Burmese dishes.

They have many specialities, but the one taste I took back with me was their pink grapefruit salad. It’s been over a year, but I can still remember the taste of the tangy-sweet-hot combination. There was some kind of spicy curry powder, peanuts, fried scallions…

Now to recreate something I had eaten once a long time ago is hard to do.

I picked a simple method: pink grapefruit, toasted peanuts, fried onions and a dressing with a mix of sweet, sour and spice.

Perhaps the Burma Burma chef is going to kill me for utterly ruining his/her dish… or give me props for at least trying! I don’t know, and for now I’ll eat my salad, thank you very much!

 So, here goes nothing… 🙂
