Where do Singapore Noodles Originate

Despite it’s name it was not created in Singapore.

Singapore is known to be the hub of many cultures and many of their dishes today have been influenced by many different types of foreigners over the centuries.

Today you can find many different types of dishes eaten in Singapore. These noodles however are well known worldwide and are eaten by all types of people.

Some like them with meat such as shrimp, chicken, pork or beef.  And others like it purely vegetarian, which is good also.

This dish is also very easy to prepare and can be ready to serve in under 30 minutes.

I used to order this often from my local Chinese restaurant, now I make it myself. 

Singapore noodles are made with vermicelli rice noodles, chicken breasts and seasoned with curry powder, and some other popular Asian ingredients.

You will want to start with sauteing the chicken first, and meanwhile soaking the vermicelli noodles around the same time.

Preparing the vegetables ahead of time, and setting aside when you’re ready to make the dish.

The fantastic flavors of this dish is what has made it so popular all across singapore and now internationally.

The balance of flavors is so good here, and even though we are adding minced red chili paste for a little heat.

You will hardly notice it since the balance of the other flavors mellows it out nicely, so don’t be afraid to add that heat.

You may want to add more soya sauce near the end, stir everything together well and taste before adjusting the flavor.

Looking for some added heat? Simply add in more of the minced chili paste, but be careful you only want a little more, it’s hot stuff.
