  • About

These beautiful crepes (called yei mont in central Burma and mok ghieh-ba in Kachin State) are made at markets all over Burma. They are close first cousins of dosa, the crepe-like flatbread of southern India, but like other dishes in Burma that probably originated in the Indian subcontinent, they have taken on a distinctive identity.

The batter is made of rice flour and unlike dosa batter, it is not fermented, instead whisked up just before it’s needed. T
