Chicken Curry Noodle Soup/Laotian Khao Poon

Chicken Curry Noodle Soup/Laotian Khao Poon
Khao poon or Lao laksa is among Laotian’s favorite foods. It’s made with shredded or pounded chicken in red curry coconut broth. The soup is served hot with rice vermicelli, salad mix, mints and lime. It is creamy, tasty and delicious. There are many variations of khao poon-sometimes made with beef, fish, pork and chicken. I like to use the curry paste in a small can. It taste better and doesn’t have strong curry smell at all.
