Singapore Noodles Recipe

Share This Recipe

I have no idea why this stir fried rice noodle dish is named after Singapore, as our Singaporean friends have told us that is not their national dish, but what I do know is that it tastes good and is easy to make.

We have only used shrimp but often people will add chicken or pork. You could also experiment with other vegetables, and use a mild curry powder if you don’t want the dish to be hot!

Cooking instructions


Step 1: First place 150 of rice vermicelli into a bowl of cool water, and leave to soak for 15 minutes. Whilst the noodles are soaking, beat 1 egg, and then heat 1 tbsp of cooking oil in a wok on a high heat.

Step 2: Once the wok is hot, add 1/2 chopped onion and 1/4 sliced red bell pepper to the wok, and stir fry them for about 90 seconds, then set them aside.

Step 3: Now heat 1 tbsp of cooking oil in the wok on a high heat, and when hot, fry 125g of shrimp for a couple of minutes until the shrimp are pink and cooked. Set them aside with the onions and peppers we fried earlier.

Step 4: Next heat 1 1/2 tbsp of cooking oil in a wok on a medium heat, and ensure that the oil coats the wok. When the wok is hot, pour in the egg we beat earlier, and swirl it around the wok in a circular motion so that the egg covers the wok. Cook the egg omelette until it is light brown on both sides, and then thinly slice it as shown here, then set aside.

Step 5: Finally pour the remainder of the cooking oil into the wok, heat on a high heat, and then add 2 teaspoons of hot curry powder. briefly stir fry the curry powder in the cooking oil, then drain the 150g of rice vermicelli that we were soaking, and add them to the wok. Mix the noodles in with the curry powder and then add all of the other ingredients we prepared earlier, along with 1 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, and 1 cup of beansprouts. Mix everything together thoroughly whilst cooking for a final 1 to 2 minutes, garnish with coriander, then serve and enjoy!
