Today I was feeling very adventurous and wanted to try out something really different from another part of the world. My search for this adventurous dish landed me on Burmese Khow Suey.Although I have heard a lot about Burmese Khow Suey, I never got an opportunity to taste it till date. Burmese Khow Suey is a noodle dish consisting of coconut milk, meat and certain spices. It is a wholesome meal andis very similar to Curry Laksa, a Malaysian delicacy.

After a lot of research I decided to follow the recipe found in Rasbhara. The procedure was pretty easy and the fragrance was inviting. Now was the taste test. “Amazing” was the word. When my boys tasted their first morsel, they went “Wow!!! This is too good”. Then came the request for the second helping…… Another successful experiment..Yippee!!!

This recipe can be followed to prepare the vegetarian version substituting chicken with veggies like beans, carrots, baby corn etc.
