In Memoni cuisine, Khow suey from Burma is a noodle dish that comes from the mountainous Shan State. It is a one-dish soup meal made of egg noodles and curried beef or chicken with coconut milk, served with a variety of contrasting condiments. A squeeze of lemon also adds tanginess to Khow Suey. My 7 year old son always wants to try some new dishes, so have to workout on new and healthy option for him. So I tried vegetarian version with loads of veggies and used Semolina Spaghetti instead of Rice noodles with minimal oil, nothing is fried to make it more healthier. It's a complete tasty healthy and full meal.
