Start with boiling the noodles in a pan.

The best thing about Khao Suey is that you can put all the vegetables you like, from mushrooms, broccoli and carrots to peas and capsicum, anything and everything goes with this dish. We have taken carrots along with yellow and red capsicum.

In another pan, heat some oil. Add finely chopped ginger and garlic. After about 30 seconds, add green chillies along with dried red chillies. Saute for another 30 seconds.

Add chopped carrots and let them cook for a minute with the other things in the pan on low flame. Finally, add turmeric powder and mix well. Turmeric is a very crucial spice in Burmese cooking.

Following this, add coriander powder and mix well. Let it cook for good 2-3 minutes.

Next comes the star of the dish! Add coconut milk along with a dash of water and let it cook nicely. Keep checking on the noodles. Once done, strain them.

To give the curry of Khao Suey its taste, add sugar and soya sauce. This is the perfect time to add capsicum. Let this beautiful yellow curry cook for another 5 minutes.

Place the curry on a shallow plate with some boiled noodles.

For the garnish, you can use fried onions, spring onions, shallow fried peanuts, fried garlic and some onion wedges.
