Join Chef Nandini Sharma to make and taste Burmese khow suey or curried chicken noodle bowl.
The dish originates in Northern Burma – now Myanmar, a country that shares a border with India in the West and Thailand in the East. The dish is popular in East India, in Calcutta where chef Nandini grew up and tasted this dish being offered in small noodle shops by Burmese immigrants.
Start with an appetizer of “Aloo tikkis” which will be made ahead of time – this is Indian street food.
As you enjoy your appetizer watch the chef cook coconut chicken curry from scratch and enjoy a tasting of the same as a final dish on the menu. The dish is a “noodle bowl” that starts with a serving of noodles – typically egg-wheat noodles (but can easily be replaced with rice noodles for a Gluten Free option) and the curried chicken broth is added to the noodles.
Then there are multiple toppings that make the final dish: Shredded chicken, chopped boiled eggs, fried shallots and lime juice are mandatory!  Others include:
Chopped raw red onion; Chopped green spring onions; Chopped cilantro; Sautéed shrimp; Chili oil; Chopped and pickled hot Thai chili pepper;
For dessert taste “besan” or Indian fudge made with roasted chick-pea flour.  Wine will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle.  

Reserve Early!!!  This class will fill quickly!!!
