Singapore Noodles

“Singapore Noodles was something I would always order if we went out for a Chinese but it normally comes with pork and prawns which just don’t float my boat anymore, If you want to give it a protein boost you can add a couple of eggs – Just whisk them up, push the cooked veg to one side of the pan and let them scramble.”

  • Vermicelli noodles
  • 1 tbsp curry paste,I recommend a madras but get a mild one if you prefer.

  • Heat the oil in a wok or big sauté pan and add the garlic, ginger, carrot, pepper, cabbage, beansprouts and mushrooms - for 3 mins over a high heat whilst stirring continually.
  • Mix the curry paste and soy sauce with 100 ml of water, add to the pan and let bubble for a couple of minutes.
