Veg Burmese Khao Suey is a Burmese coconut-based noodle soup. It's hearty, comforting, and super delicious. Unique flavors of several toppings make this dish perfect to showcase Asian flavors. Vegan and gluten-free. This Veg Burmese Khao Suey Soup is just out of this world.
As a family, we love ordering Veg Burmese Khao Suey in Asian Restaurants whenever we visit India. They are pretty popular back home. What we like the most is that you can add all the toppings according to your taste and choice. Spice levels can also be increased or decreased.
I love aromatic broth or soup. It's just so soothing and fresh that it always makes me happy.
There are several components and toppings of the Khao - Suey. Using all the detail is the most fun. You can prepare everything in advance and assemble it whenever you need to.
It consists of mainly three components.
For the Curry Paste,
Grind ginger, garlic, lemongrass, cilantro leaves, stems, and turmeric powder. With a little bit of salt, this makes an excellent aromatic curry paste.
How to Make Coconut Curry / Broth?
First, chop all the vegetables into your desired shape and size.
Saute all the vegetables with little oil until they look cooked and golden.
