Singapore Noodles



  • 8 ounces thin dried rice noodles
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarsely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 6 fresh red or green chiles, seeded and finely shredded
  • 6 fresh or canned water chestnuts, peeled if fresh, sliced
  • 2 ounces Chinese black mushrooms, soaked, stems removed, and finely shredded
  • 1/4 pound Chinese barbecue pork or cooked ham, finely shredded
  • 3 scallions, finely shredded
  • 4 ounces cooked small shrimp, shelled
  • 1 1/2 cups small, sweet frozen peas, thawed
  • Cilantro leaves, to garnish

Curry Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Indian Madras curry paste or powder
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup good quality ready-made chicken stock


  1. Soak the rice noodles in a bowl of warm water for 25 minutes, then drain them in a colander or sieve.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the eggs with the sesame oil, salt, and pepper and set aside.
  3. Heat a wok over a high heat, then add the peanut oil. When it is very hot and slightly smoking, add the garlic, ginger, and chiles and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the water chestnuts, mushrooms, pork or ham, and scallions and stir-fry for 1 minute. Then add the rice noodles, shrimp, and peas and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Add all the sauce ingredients and cook over a high heat for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Now pour the egg mixture over the noodles and stir-fry constantly until the egg has set. Turn the noodles on to a large platter, garnish with cilantro leaves and serve immediately.
