Burmese Khow Suey Recipe (Indianized version)

Updated on June 8, 2020

Burmese Khow Suey Recipe (Indianized version)

Khow Suey is a noodle soup made of egg noodles and curried beef or chicken with coconut milk served with a variety of contrasting condiments. The dish is similar to the ohn no khauk swe, literally means ‘coconut milk noodles’. A squeeze of lemon also adds tanginess to Khow Suey. Here is a recipe of me representing the Indianized vegetarian version of this beautiful recipe.


For the curry paste:

  • 12-15 Dry red chillies.
  • 2-3 Lemongrass stalks.
  • 10-12 cloves of garlic.
  • 2 inches of ginger/galangal.
  • 2tbsp cumin seeds.
  • 2tbsp coriander seeds.
  • 1/4th cup of water.

For soup:

  • 2tbsp oil.
  • 2tbsp gram flour.
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder.
  • 1 tsp jeera powder.
  • ¼ cup of water.
  • 2 cups of coconut milk.
  • ¼ cup carrot.
  • 1/4th cup mushrooms.
  • 1/4th cup baby corn.
  • 1/4th cup bell peppers.
  • Salt to taste.
  • 1tsp lemon juice.
  • Boiled noodles.
  • Fried garlic.
  • Peanuts.
  • Fried onions.
  • Fresh coriander.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Spring onion.


  • In a grinder, add dry red chillies, lemongrass stalks, cloves of garlic, ginger/galangal, cumin seeds, coriander seeds and water.
  • Grind it and this is your curry paste.
  • Now set a pan on medium heat and add oil, gram flour, turmeric, jeera powder, curry paste and water.
  • Mix well and cook it for some time.
  • Now add carrot, mushrooms, baby corn, bell peppers, salt to taste and lemon juice.
  • Cook it for some times and keep aside.
  • Now take a soup bowl, place some boiled noodles in the centre of the bowl and pour soup in it.
  • Now top it with fried garlic, fresh coriander, lemon juice and spring onion.
  • Serve hot and immediately.
