  • This dish looks delicious (and wonderfully healthy!), but isn’t khao soi as we know it! It’s definitely missing the (deep fried) crispy egg noodles that usually accompany the dish, and we don’t usually use the basil as a garnish – we use pickled vegetables, finely sliced shallots and lime.

    • Jeannie, I agree with you that this is not authentic Khao Soi. I am a vegetarian, and so this is completely modified to suite those needs. The style of serving the curry over the noodles is what I have been inspired by!
