Making Ohn no (coconut milk) khow suey (noodles) is a long drawn laborious process, with every ingredient freshly made. Here’s a shortcut method I learnt from my mom.
- Egg noodles 1 packet
- Breast pieces of chicken 2 (cut into small pieces)
- Chilli powder 1 tsp
- Turmeric powder ½ tsp
- Fish sauce 1 tbsp
- Chopped large onion 1
- Ginger piece 1 inch
- Half pod of garlic
- Lemon grass with roots
- Small tetra pack of coconut milk 1
- Lightly roasted gram flour (besan) 1 tbsp
- Garnish- chilli flakes- spring onions or coriander leaves- lime- hard boiled eggs
- Boil a packet of egg noodles and keep aside.
- Marinate the chicken pieces with turmeric, chilli and fish sauce for half an hour.
- Grind onion, garlic and ginger into a rough paste, then fry till golden brown. Add chicken, and lightly pounded lemon grass roots. Once it’s cooked add water (about 1 litre), coconut milk, gram flour and salt to taste. Tie the lemon grass into a bunch and boil with the soup till the flavours fill your kitchen.
- To serve, place some noodles in a bowl, top it with soup, and add garnishing as per your preference.
