Thai cooking lesson – Khao Soi (ข้าวซอย)
Khao soi is a dish of the northern Thai cuisine massively popular in the area of Chiang Mai. It originates from Yunnan, the southern province of China, whose people migrated from there via Myanmar and Laos to Thailand at the end of the 19th century. Those people, as well called the “Chin Ho” were predominately muslim, which is the reason it’s mostly served with chicken or beef.
The version of the dish shown here is with egg noodles and coconut milk like eaten in the western half of Northern Thailand and very similar in the cuisine of the Shan People who primarily live in Myanmar.
