How to Make Singapore Noodles


  1. To make sauce, heat sesame oil in a small pan over medium. Add curry powder, ginger and garlic; sauté until fragrant. Add chicken broth, soy sauce, sugar, and chili paste. Stir to combine and then cover; cook for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside
  2. In a large bowl, place vermicelli and soak in enough hot water to cover, until noodles are soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Use a fork or chopstick to separate noodles while in the water. Drain and set aside. Sprinkle noodles slightly with curry powder. Mix and repeat until all noodles are colored yellow.
  3. In a large wok over high, heat 2 tbsp. oil. Add onion, peppers (red & jalapeño) and cook until softened. Add garlic, ginger and stir fry until garlic start to become golden. Add green onions and bean sprouts; stir fry for 3 minutes. Set vegetables aside in a bowl.
  4. Heat another 2 tbsp. oil over high heat. Add shrimps and stir-fry until they turn pink on both sides. Add *Char Siu and toss to combine. Create a space on one side of the wok and add beaten eggs. Cook until scrambled. Add noodles and vegetables; toss to combine. Pour sauce and mix thoroughly to coat noodles. Serve with toasted sesame seeds and fresh chives
  5. Note: Add tofu if desired
