Curry Chicken Noodles


Helllooo Foodies,
What's been brewing in your kitchen? Anything special I should know, or even anything simplest simplicity you have been cooking? Please share your cooking pleasure with me. I definitely would like to hear? Drop me a mail, no qualms. I am all ears mind you. I on the other hand made this Curry Chicken Noodles last week, for my weekend eating pleasure (Penang Assam Laksa, Hokkien Mee, Lamb Pho, Penang Hokkien Mee, Malaysian Fried Mee & Home Made Curry Mee). Noodles again? Indeed. The lazy me I guess, instead of rolling the pots and pans for a rice meal. Please do not read the recipe wrongly. Not the same as the previous chicken curries (Chicken Curry Potato, Indian Chicken Curry & Chicken Devil Curry). Trust me, not the same, though it features chicken and curry (Ayam Masak Merah). Bowling-bouncing spicy, curry leaves and lemongrass scented curry, generously soaking up yellow noodles and fried chicken, garnished with mint leaves and chilli. Curry is meatless, which means hello there vegetarians. You don't need the fried chicken right?
