Brainy Sweet

An enjoyable breakfast for some people is goat brain with nan roti ( Indian bread). Some people pick out the head of the foul in a chicken dish to get at the brain. A popular sweet for Myanmar people is Moun Oun Hnauk ( brain cake). The odd thing about it is that it contains no animal matter.
