Spicing up Instant Noodles

The past couple of weeks, the weather here has been unbearably hot and humid. Imagine, even with the air-cond on, you can still perspire - haizz!

So ... being too lazy to go out for lunch on a hot Sunday afternoon and it's really too tiresome to cook an elaborate meal, I turned to my trusted instant noodles. Having bought some of my favourite fishcake at the pasar pagi the previous day, I had those fried and sliced and they made a perfect accompaniment to my noodles!

Since I had also bought some vegetables and fuchook (beancurd skin) the day before, I decided to whip up a fast Vegetables Curry. Cabbage, ladies fingers, brinjals, long beans, tomatoes - these were all cut up and went into the curry pot...

Ahhh... the curried vegetables went very well with my noodles, too! I love the softened fuchook which has absorbed the rich flavours of the curry spices and coconut milk... yumm!

PureGlutton said...

nomadgourmand: Thanks :-) Simple vege curry goes well with anything! Just eating it on its own is also fulfilling, hehe!

PureGlutton said...
