DIRECTIONS

  • Place chiles in a small heatproof bowl, add boiling water to cover, and let soak until softened, 25–30 minutes.
  • Drain chiles, reserving soaking liquid. Purée chiles, shallots, garlic, ginger, cilantro, coriander, turmeric, curry powder, and 2 tablespoons soaking liquid in a food processor, adding more soaking liquid by tablespoonfuls, if needed, until smooth. You've just made khao soi paste!
  • Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add khao soi paste; cook, stirring constantly, until slightly darkened, 4–6 minutes. Add coconut milk and broth. Bring to a boil; add chicken. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is fork-tender, 20–25 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Let cool slightly; shred meat.
  • Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions.
  • Add chicken, 3 tablespoons fish sauce, and sugar to soup. Season with salt and/or more fish sauce, if needed. Divide soup and noodles among bowls and serve with toppings.
