HOW TO MAKE SINGAPORE NOODLES?
SINGAPORE NOODLES- RICE NOODLES AND VEGGIES TOSSED IN A LIGHT CURRY POWDER.
Singapore noodles is a delicious, gluten free and vegan rice noodles based dish that is chock full of vegetables. Now, i really do not know why this is called Singapore noodles. Because, this dish is not available anywhere in Singapore and is only popular in the West.
Singapore noodles are basically a stir fry dish with rice noodles and veggies or meat. This can be called a cousin of the fried bee hoon that is available across all hawker stalls in Singapore. But this dish is more like a marriage of Indian flavors and the oriental rice noodles.
You can use any curry powder of choice for this recipe. But sambar powder, idli molaga podi etc will not give you the same taste as the real Singapore noodles. I used Mc Cormick’s curry powder for this recipe and i highly recommend it for this particular recipe. (This is not a sponsored post and this is just a recommendation).
Similarly, you can use all the veggies listed here or just stick to a few. Meat also works well in this recipe. Whichever you choose, this is a simple and hearty meal that can easily feed four on a lazy week night.
