Northern Thailand spicy but yummy khao-soi

While I was in Chiangmai in the north of Thailand last week, I enjoyed looking around for what is unique in there. My Thai friends brought me to the night market and here's the food they let me try - Khao soi. "Khao" means rice and "soi" is a northern term for the spicy curry with coconut milk that is mixed with the yellow noodles (shown on the left photo). You may have a choice between "nuea" (beef) or "kai" (chicken). As a beef-lover, I chose khao-soi-nuea.

The northern-style curry beef or chicken with coconut milk and lots of chili

The curry is rather spicy but you can mix it with a lot of raw sprouted mung (mongo) beans and sliced cabbage then squeeze manao (lemon) into it to balance the taste.

Now pick extra spices in case you're not contented with the tons of chili in the curry. 


There you are, so aroi (yummy)! Eat it with chopsticks. In case you can't bear the fiery taste, cool yourself with chilled fresh passion fruit juice famous in the north.
