My version of singapore curry rice vermicelli is so flavourful, not spicy thanks to the fact that we’re using yellow curry powder (not Madras curry powder). It carries that curry flavour that we all know and enjoy.

Below are tips on making yellow curry Singapore noodles:
Soak vermicelli in hot boiling water for only 1-2 minutes.
Do not oversoak and not bring these noodles to a boil either. Only soak them until they become limp and immediately strain. For even chewier noodles, feel free to rinse them under cold water.
Cut noodles to make frying easier
Culturally, you’re not supposed to cut noodles but to make things easier, I would recommend cutting the rehydrated noodles with clean scissors a few times. This will help the noodles better incorporate with the other ingredients.
Pre-mix the noodle sauce
Combine your noodle sauce in advance for an even distribution of taste.
