This one-dish meal is sure to strike every single of your taste buds with its vibrant flavour! The Burmese Khowsuey features layers of noodles, a vegetable curry made with coconut milk and an elaborate masala of spices, coconut and cashew nuts, and an elaborate garnish of fried onions, garlic, vaal dal and spring onions. This gives the dish a unique texture and a really unforgettable flavour. Although this dish obviously involves too much effort, right from preparing the noodles and the curry to the garnishes, it is completely, absolutely worth it!
