Singapore Noodles


Thin Rice Noodles - a fistful
Olive Oil - 2 tsp
Peanut Oil - 1 tbsp
Garlic - 3 cloves, thinly sliced
Ginger - 1 inch, grated
Yellow Onion - 1/2, thickly chopped
Green Chili - 2, chopped
Thinly Chopped Mixed Vegetables - carrots, green beans, cabbage, capsicum,
Curry Powder - 1/2 tsp
Soy sauce - 1 tbsp.
Fish Sauce - 1 tsp
Organic Eggs - 4
Sriracha Hot Sauce - 1/4 tsp
Shrimp - 1/2 lb along with a sprinkle of turmeric and red chili powder

Boil 4 cups of water to boil in a large pan. Switch off the burner and add the rice noodles. Leave it for a few minutes and strain it out. Separate the strands with a fork and keep aside

Heat a skillet, add a little olive oil and scramble the eggs with a little salt, pepper and hot sauce. Keep aside. Add a couple of tsp of olive oil and the shrimp. Sprinkle a little salt, turmeric and red chili powder. cook for a few minutes till the shrimp is just done. Keep aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a wok. Once the oil is very hot, add the chopped garlic, ginger, green chilies and sliced onion. Cook for a minute.

Then add in the vegetables and stir fry on very high heat. Mix half tsp of curry powder. The trick is not to overcook the vegetables, they should remain crunchy. After 3 to 4 minutes, when the vegetables are almost cooked, add the noodles and add a tablespoon of soy sauce and fish sauce and salt to taste.

Add the scrambled eggs and the cooked shrimp. Stir for a bit more time on a high flame so that a few strands of noodles become a bit crunchy. Serve hot.
