Freestyle Curry Noodle

Well, I am not sure what got into me yesterday evening after a long day work, I drove myself straight to the Giant supermarket at One-Utama, PJ before reaching my apartment. The only thing that was permanently stucked or plastered in my mind was curry noodle. I guess lately a lot of my fellow food bloggers had been doing write up on this topic.

Churning up a bowl of curry noodle in my kitchen can be a tricky issue as it very time consuming. But due to my starvation for curry noodle, I was willing to take the challenge and make it a reality. I am sure you know that I did if you scroll down to see those pictures that I had captured yesterday.

I could not believe myself that it only took me about less than half an hour to get this dish ready and not only for one person but it was enough to feed more two person, of course myself and Sunny Yaw. He was busy preparing an cake order for a client. To tell you the truth, he is really dead tired because last weekend he had to prepare one hundred gifts, mini wedding cakes for M.E. & R.T.'s wedding.

Anyway theres a secret of achieving this dish in less than half an hour, I bought a packed of chicken curry paste and a curry laksa paste manufacturedby Tean's Gourmet.

Chicken curry and curry laksa paste

Since I had this two pack of paste inhand, it still does not complete the dish. I got to have the topping and the noodle. So I decided to have chicken, tofu "pok", fish paste "yee wat", fresh egg noodle "wan ton noodle" and some greens. Whala...! That would be my creation and I would call it curry noodle freestyle.

Tofu "pok" and fresh egg noodles

fish paste "Yee Wat"

Firstly I create the soup by using the pack of curry laksa paste and milk as to replace coconut milk. This not only really a health issue but just that my kitchen had run out coconut cream. Once the milk is boiled, I put in the tofu "pok" and leave it to boil for 5 mins.

Next was to churn up the chicken curry by using cut chicken breast and chicken curry paste. Once ready, I boiled the fish paste "yee wat", the veg and the egg noodle.

Cooked fish paste "yee wat"

Once everything is completed, I put the cooked egg noodles on the the serving bowl, poured in the curry laksa soup, placed the curry chicken on top the egg noodle, placed the tofu "pok" , cooked fish paste and the veg.
