We thoroughly enjoyed this, as it seemed to be a recreation of one of my favorite dishes to order from Chinese take-out - Singapore Mei Fun! I made this almost exactly as posted, but I had some green and purple peppers from the farm, so used that instead of red (which would have been more colorful). I also used 16 oz. of shrimp, because we really love it. This was surprisingly easy to put together and packed a lot of flavor.

We enjoyed this curry for dinner last night. This makes a great weeknight meal since it comes together so quickly. It is also colorful and looks nice on the plate. The curry powder I used was a little on the hotter side, which I usually like, however this dish lends itself to a milder curry powder, I think. Made for ZWT9

This recipe is by far one of my favorites. My husband and I tried it and we added some carrots, broccoli, basil and crushed pepper flakes. The result was superb!!!!
