Singapore Noodles – curry-flavored fried rice noodles with chicken and shrimp. The BEST Singapore noodle recipe to try at home!
I am sure many of you have tried Singapore Noodles in Chinese/Cantonese restaurants here in the US. Singapore noodles do not originate from Singapore. If you go to Singapore, you will never find it there. I believe the dish is a Chinese creation. It’s basically stir-fried rice noodles, flavored with curry powder.
In any case, the origin shouldn’t really matter. It’s one of the most popular noodle dishes and quite delicious, and I am sharing my homemade Singapore noodles recipe with you. It’s very easy to make, and you can make a big batch for the entire family.
The noodles used in the recipe is rice noodles or rice vermicelli. They are also called “Mai Fun” (Cantonese spelling) and I have seen them at the international food aisles at many food stores. If you can’t find them at your store, you will be able to find them at Asian food stores.
