Yes yes yes!!! After like 7 years I am posting on ARAD again!
This time it is a dish from Burma. This is a very desi-fied dish. Looks complex but is very easy and definitely impressive when you serve.
Khow Suey is prepared on the table by the guest themselves. So it can be tailored as per your taste.
Ingredients (to serve 4 people):
Meat - Chicken/Lamb/Beef: 500gms
Coconut milk (Ready can or milk powder to make 500ml milk)- 2 cans
Garlic - 5-6 cloves
Whole red chillies - 2 to 3
Paprika powder 1 tsp
Tikka Masala 2 tsp
1. Spaghetti: Get the usual spaghetti and boil it with little oil and some salt. I generally use hot kettle water and then boil the spaghetti in that.
2. Coconut Curry: Heat 2 tbsp Oil add garlic, whole red chilly and curry leaves. Then add besan (gram flour) keep stirring. Once you can smell the cooked besan, add coconut milk and water. Cook for 10 minutes, the curry should go a bit thick. Then paprika powder and salt as per taste.
3. Chicken/Lamb/Beef: Chop the meat of your choice in thin strips. Making them thin will cook them soon and make them easy to eat with spaghetti. Heat oil, add finely chopped onions. When light golden, add tomatoes (finely chopped or canned tomatoes) and cook till it becomes a homogeneous paste. Add chicken tikka masala and salt as per taste. In another pan, heat 2 tbsp oil and add meat. Cook till meat changes colour. Add the fried meat to onion-tomato paste. Cook for another 10 minutes on medium heat.
4. Garnishing: Garnishing to be served in individual bowls
- a. Chopped spring onions
- b. Ready salted roasted peanuts
- c. Fried potato sticks
- d. Crispy fried onions
- e. Finely chopped coriander
- f. Lemon juice.
You can mix together Spaghetti, Coconut Curry and Meat curry in one big pan before serving. Or you can leave them all in separate serving bowl and you can mix them at the table. Garnish your bowl with some or all of the garnishings above.
It definitely taste as good as it looks. Even better!
