In Burmese cuisine, Khow suey, from Burmese ခေါက်ဆွဲ, 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.[1] A squeeze of lemon also adds tanginess to Khow Suey.[2] The dish is similar to the Burmese noodle dish ohn no khauk swe, literally "coconut milk noodles."

History[edit]

The dish originated in Burma, and came to East India with Indians who migrated from Burma during World War II.
