Khauk swè thoke (Burmese: ခေါက်ဆွဲသုပ်‌; pronounced [kʰaʊʔ sʰwɛ́ θoʊʔ]) is an a thoke salad dish in Burmese cuisine. A wheat noodle salad, it is made with dried shrimp, shredded cabbage, carrots, fish sauce, lime and dressed with fried peanut oil.

After the Second World war, Over 300,000 ethnic Indians in Burma, including Tamils from Tamil Nadu, Telugus from Andhra Pradesh and Marwaris from the Marwar region of India's Rajasthan, emigrated to India. After returning to India, they brought their food culture also along with them. In Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, migrants sell khauk swe, which is very famous in the area called Burma Colony. In Chennai, India, a version of the dish, called atho (အသုပ်), is sold by street vendors.
