Athouk & Mohinga

Atho or Athouk. These consist of boiled noodles cooked with spices, shredded cabbage, onions, chili flakes, roasted channa dal powder, tamarind juice, bejo, garlic oil, coriander leaves and etc are the ingredients of Athouk. To give the dish a crunchy feel.

This food also eaten with the accompaniment of Mohinga,a soup made with fish broth & plantain stem, onion, ginger, garlic, chili, turmeric and rice flour. It is an awesome combination.

Mohinga, which is considered the unofficial Burmese national food. It is essentially rice noodles served in fish broth with fried onions, garlic, ginger and sliced tender core of plantain stem. If you ask for it, it will also be served with boiled eggs. It is essentially a soup meal and a delightful one at that.


Many Tamils were settled in Burma then and slowly emigrated back here after Independence.Burmese people started migrating to India. Most of them arrived at the Chennai Port and used to leave for other smaller cities by boarding trains at the Beach Railway Station.

A few shrewd Burmese families set up these small shops to sell authentic Burmese food to them. The business became a big hit and has stayed that.Descendants of these Indian-Burmese who brought with them such culinary delights.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It began in 1984 as an annual conference devoted to Technology, Entertainment and Design -- hence TED -- but TED's reach, and its scope, have become ever broader since then. TEDTalks cover science, arts, politics, global issues, architecture, music and more. Speakers come from a wide variety of communities and disciplines -- people like Bill Clinton, Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

The TED Conference itself takes place in Long Beach each spring, with a simulcast event in Palm Springs. In 2009, we'll also host a summer conference in Oxford, UK, called TEDGlobal, as well as a conference in fall 2009 called TEDIndia, in Mysore, India. Anyone can apply to attend a TED Conference! If you want to come, apply for an invitation. More info here:
