Northern noodles with shrimp curry Sauce

Northern noodles with shrimp curry Sauce or Khao Soy : Khao Soi :ข้าวซอย " in Thai. I made Khao Soy for our lunch today. I used dried noodles. If you have egg noodle on hand would be great for this recipe. I try to use turmeric powder in the dish. This is very good Thai dish I want to recommend you to try it. If you see in the menu any Thai restaurant, you would try to order this. This is not frequently served in Western Thai restaurants. I am sure you would love to have it again. Khao Soy is typically a rich gravy poured over soft noodles, then topped with the same noodles but crispy but I didn't fry the noodles put on top of the dish but it still tastes good.
