Dry Chicken Curry Noodles 乾咖喱雞麵 - "Malaysian Monday 40"



I have mentioned how much I adore chicken curry and it was on our menu yet again. The leftover was turned into another one of my childhood favourites. You can easily replace the Hokkien noodles with your choice of noodles. Please check out my Malaysian chicken curry mee (mee = noodles) if you prefer something with a broth. For those who are not familiar with the caramel sauce that I use so often in many of my recipes, I have attached a photo and descriptions below and I hope that is useful to you.



recipe per serve
you'll need;
left over Malaysian chicken curry, reheated
half a packet of Hokkien noodles, loosen or dried egg noodles
a handful of bean sprouts
1 spring onion, chopped
chopped bird chillies to serve
fried shallots to serve

for the dressing;
1.5 tbs of shallot oilgarlic oil or chicken oil
1 .5 tbs of light soy
1.5 tbs of caramel sauce (pictured below)
1 tbs of oyster sauce
1 tsp of castor sugar
dash of white pepper



This is my preferred brand for caramel sauce - Cheong Chan brand thick caramel sauce (祥珍生晒油). Available at all good Asian grocers.



Prepare the dressing.



Cook noodles for a minute then add in the bean sprouts and drain immediately.



Mix noodles with the prepared dressing.



Pour the chicken curry over and garnish with spring onions, fried shallots and and cut chillies.

  2. I love chicken curry too :) I recently noticed that sauce has gone from glass bottle to plastic. Still not sure if that's a good thing or not.

  8. This looks fab! Just wondering if I can use ABC Kecap Manis instead of caramel sauce. Do you think they taste the same? Thanks! Keep up the great work!
