Seafood Curry Noodle

I do miss a good bowl of curry mee or curry noodle once a, it is time to cook this dish and pamper my tummy...hahaha. In the central region, most of the hawker stalls serve curry mee with curry chicken but I was yearning for some other toppings so I thought, why not, let me get my own favourite topping - seafood! Cooking at home means I have full control of the amount of coconut milk to be used as my stomach could not agree with too much coconut milk... The toppings added are prawns, pieces of fish - stingray, fried beancurd (taufo pok), taugeh and some leafy greens. My kids love to have hard boiled eggs, so that's a request. The soup is pretty simple and easy to prepare too. The soup will appear "chilly red color" once you add a spoonful of the cooked chilly paste into the soup... Did you see a spoonful of the cooked chilly paste besides the lime in the bowl? Just add more chilly paste if you wish the curry mee to be real "hot"...

So look at this beautiful bowl of Seafood Curry Mee.. There are various cooking version of curry mee and I fancy Penang style, as the soup is not too thick, less coconut milk and it consist of simple toppings like cockles (see ham) and cuttlefish, fried taufo pok and beansprout (taugeh) and a nice cooked chilly paste to go with...yum, yum, yum!
