  1. Having this tonight and it’s looking awesome! I used fresh carrots beans and capsicum instead of frozen veg and chicken stock and Singapore noodles in place of 2 min noodles & seasoning but just snuck a taste and I can’t wait for dinner! Thanks for an Easley, cheap tummy filler.

  2. Thank you for this recipe. This is easy to make, very tasty and was very filling as a main meal. Also it lends itself to tinkering to your own personal preferences. I doubled the recipe because I like freezing lots of left overs. I added minced garlic when browning onions and next time i will add chilli cos I like a kick (I would add chilli to ice cream!!). Overall I can highly recommend this as an easy to prepare, tasty and healthy meal choice. It would also sit well as a side to a main meal.

  3. Haha just read my own review after having cooked this again today. Again I doubled the recipe and added minced garlic (one heaped teaspoon) into the onions. I added 6 small chillis (chopped and seeds in !!), used a 450g slaw mix and 1/4 of cabbage, a pack of frozen vegies, tripled the curry powder, and 5 packs of mi goreng noodles (and all the spice/oil etc). When serving I microwaved scrambled egg (5 eggs). A meal and 12 leftovers, devine and so much in my strong flavour preference.

  4. didn’t use stock , or the 1 minute noodles i used those in the pots , i liked it , daughter said it was bland, ( didnt have any peanut butter or tomato sauce flavour i think is what she meant )

  5. I am doing Chemo, and lost Taste Buds, so anything that goes in Hot , is good for me. and this will sure boot m,those buds with extra curry, and garlic..come on tea tonight..thanks for simple recipe.

  6. Thank you Pauline, this is a lovely recipe, that is definitely on repeat. The smell wafting through the house while it was cooking, got the attention of the trade putting our appliances in.

  7. A bowl of Deliciousness 😋 I added Chilli as we like a bit of kick, will definitely be making this again.
