Despite being named after Singapore, this recipe was actually born in HK in the 1960s, the time when HK was a British colony. As HK became the transportation hub between Europe and Southeast Asia, lots of cuisines from all over the world started creating sparks in this little island. With influence from the Indian spices, this stir-fried curry rice noodle dish found its way and spread globally. Singapore noodle is a very interesting dish that shows how multicultural Cantonese cooking could be. The curry powder is pleasantly invasive because it works so well on these spindly rice noodles.

? RECIPE

Ingredients
For the noodles and protein
200 grams of dried rice stick noodle (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/wcl3nc)
6 cups of boiling water to soak the noodles
70 grams of char siu thinly sliced
150 grams (5.3 oz) of shrimp
A pinch of salt
Some black pepper to taste (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/7PcQh9)
2 eggs

Vegetables and aromatics
70 grams (2.5 oz) of multi-color bell pepper, cut into strips
42 grams (1.5 oz) of carrot, julienned
42 grams (1.5 oz) of onion, sliced thinly
42 grams (1.5 oz) of bean sprout
28 grams (1 oz) of garlic chive, cut into 1.5 inches long
2 cloves of garlic sliced thinly

For the seasonings
1 tbsp of soy sauce (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/8eBP6Fh)
1 tbsp of fish sauce (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/fA82WpM)
2 tsp of oyster sauce (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/EvjPg)
1 tsp of sugar
1-2 tsp of curry powder depending on your taste (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/UitHgm)
1 tsp of turmeric powder (Amazon Link – https://geni.us/f3EeeEv)

Instructions
Bring 8 cups of water to a boil then turn off the heat. Soak the rice noodles for 2-8 minutes depending on the thickness. Mine was medium thick and it took about 5 minutes. Do not overcook the noodles, otherwise, they will turn mushy when you stir fry them. You can give it a bite to test it. The noodles should be a little bit chewy at the center.

Remove the noodles from the water and spread them on a cooling rack. Let the rest of the heat helps to evaporate the excess moisture. This is the key to avoid clumpy and sticky noodles. Do not rinse the noodles with cold water as it will bring in too much moisture and make the noodles stick to the wok badly.

SLice the Char sui thinly; Seasoned the shrimp with a pinch of salt and some black pepper to taste; Crack 2 eggs and beat them well until you don’t see any obvious egg white; Julienne the bell pepper, carrot, onion and cut the garlic chives into 1.5 inches long.

Before we cooking, thoroughly mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
Turn the heat to high and heat your wok until smoking hot. Add a few tbsp of oil and swirl it around to create a nonstick layer. Pour in the egg and wait for it to set. Then break the egg into big pieces. Push the egg to the side so you have room to sear the shrimp. The wok is super hot, it only takes 20 seconds for the shrimp to turn pink. Push the shrimp to the side and toss the char siu for 10-15 seconds over high heat to reactivate the flavor. Take all the proteins out and set them aside.

Add 1 more tbsp of oil to the same wok, along with the garlic, and carrot. Give them a quick stir then add the noodles. Fluff the noodles over high heat for a few minutes.

Add the sauce, along with all the vegetables except for the garlic chives. Introduce the protein back into the wok. Quickly stir to make sure the flavor is well combined. Once you don’t see any white rice noodles, add the garlic chives and give it a final toss.

Before serving, always give it a taste to adjust the flavor. As I mentioned before, different brands of curry powder, curry paste, even soy sauce may vary in sodium level.

  1. Despite being named after Singapore, this recipe was actually born in HK in the 1960s, the time when HK was a British colony. As HK became the transportation hub between Europe and Southeast Asia, lots of cuisines from all over the world started creating sparks in this little island. With influence from the Indian spices, this stir-fried curry rice noodle dish found its way and spread globally. However, I still have no idea why it is named after Singapore. If you know, please leave a comment below so we can all learn about it.

  5. At my local takeout, this is called Singapore Mei Fun, which I’m sure is the same thing. I LOVE this dish and am here because I want to make my own. Thank you for this, I’m heading to the store now to get the ingredients.

  6. I like curry but prefer “white sauce,” but have no idea how to make it. Can you help here? And thank you for sharing!

  7. THE SECOND BEST FOOD I HAD WAS IN HONG KONG, I ALSO MET MY WIFE AND GOT MARRIED THERE, THE BEST FOOD I HAVE TRIED IS PHILLIPINO FOOD!!!

  8. My job is not a job to me, it's my profession.
    I cooked in many restaurants many different foods. Grew up in Asian culture, it was part of my life, our life, since my people, we're employed by the Asians, including my dad and me. My pantry is full of the ingredients to make mostly Asian cuisine, my mom is getting angry.
    Took me a long time to watch this video, thank you so much, now its time to learn how to make that pork, which I've been wondering about for many years, I first made it when I was 13 years old? Yes 13 I said. Infect that was my first Asian recipe I did but that was about 30 years ago.

  11. You are so adorable! Your English is flawless, and your diction is spot-on. BTW, I love your lipstick (color and brand, please). I will be purchasing the Wok to try this and others of your recipes. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  12. Just want to really STRESS the part about letting the noodles dry out. I was a bit careless on my first try and had some sticking issues.

  13. I made this dish twice, the first time I loved it, but had a bit of room for improvement on the sauce. I reduced the sugar in half and added 1/4 tsp of salt (for 1 serving) on the second time it was perfect. I followed the sauce recipe exactly except for those tweaks. I made char sui chicken thighs in the air fryer as a substitute and it was very good.
