How to make Burmese Khow Suey

  1. In a pan, heat oil, then add in the thinly sliced garlic. Once it starts to brown, take them out and keep aside. Next fry half the thinly sliced shallots till they turn brown, then take it out and keep it aside with the fried garlic.
  2. In the same oil, add the chicken and fry them till the colour of the chicken changes and it starts to turn brown. Add the curry leaves and the remaining chopped garlic, sliced shallots and chopped ginger. Mix it well and fry for 5 minutes while stirring in between.
  3. Add the gram flour, turmeric powder, salt and stir well to avoid the forming of lumps. Add the chillies and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile bring enough water to boil in a pan to cook the noodles. Add the noodles and cook for around 10 mins or till the noodles are cooked. Drain the water and pour in cold water. Then repeat this process again. Keep it aside.
  5. Pour the coconut milk to the chicken, stir and simmer the flame. Cook for 2-3 mins while stirring continuously and take it off the heat.
  6. In a serving plate, take all the condiments separately in a small bowl and serve. Or place the noodles in a serving plate or bowl, add the finely chopped coriander leaves and pour the curried chicken over it. Place the egg over it.
  7. Garnish with spring onions if using, fried garlic, fried shallots, peanut, some sliced chilies and squeeze few drops of lemon juice.
  8. Serve it hot.
