Learn how to cook from Facebook

On Facebook, the Amazing Cambodia Page probably made its audience’s mouths water when they posted a picture of Battambang noodles, Mikola Battambang. Just seeing Chinese steamed noodles mixed with boiled eggs, sprinkled with roasted peanut and garlic, had people already imagining how this would taste. The first to comment, Darong Jonh, wrote “very delicious”. Similarly, Sin Lihour, He Hem, and HT love U apparently felt hunger as soon as they saw the image, simply posting the word “hungry”.

Amazing Cambodia Page later posted the recipe for the noodles. The page wrote: “The ingredients: Chinese noodles, boiled eggs, smoked fish, dried shrimp, roasted peanuts, fish sauce, vinegar, garlic and oil”. The recipe from Amazing Cambodia went on to detail the process of cooking this. According to the comments from Amazing Cambodia, first steam the Chinese noodles. Then smash the roasted peanuts. Peel the boiled eggs and slice them. Grind the smoked fish into fine pieces. Then mix the finely ground smoked fish with the dried shrimp. And don’t forget to chop up the garlic and roast it with oil. Once this is all complete, mix all the prepared ingredients together and pour fish sauce and vinegar into the mixture.

The picture of Battambang noodles has received 240 likes and a number of shares. Amazing Cambodia has been focusing on beautiful images of things around Cambodia – it seems that people really enjoy and want to find out more about this Kingdom of Wonder. There are still many things that Cambodians should know about the country. This is a good way of sharing as it can make people learn more about traditions in Cambodia, not only from Phnom Penh but also from the other provinces.
