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."


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