DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Drop in the rice noodles and boil until tender but firm to the bite, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse under cold water.
  • Let the noodle air-dry and firm up in a colander for at least 30 minutes or as long as 2 to 3 hours; toss occasionally.
  • When you are ready to prepare the dish, whisk together the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of the curry powder, and all of the sesame oil until blended.
  • Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of the peanut or vegetable oil into a heavy skillet or wok set over moderately high heat.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and immediately reduce the heat to low.
  • Scramble the eggs until just set; turn out onto a plate and reserve.
  • Return the skillet to moderately high heat and spoon in 1/2 tablespoon of the oil.
  • Add the shrimp and stir fry until just barely cooked, about 1 minute (they will cook more later).
  • Remove the shrimp and reserve in a small bowl.
  • Return the skillet to moderately high heat and spoon in 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  • Add the pork and chicken and stir fry until just cooked, about 1 minute.
  • Remove and reserve in a small bowl.
  • Place a large, heavy wok over high heat.
  • When very hot, spoon in 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  • Add the ginger, garlic, chilies, and the remaining curry powder.
  • Stir fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the Chinese pork or ham and red and green bell peppers and stir fry for 30 seconds.
  • Sprinkle on 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and cook until it boils away.
  • Push the ingredients to the sides of the wok and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Add the scallions, bean sprouts, and noodles and toss over high heat until very hot, about 30 seconds.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Return the shrimp, pork, and chicken to the wok and add the soy sauce and sherry.
  • Toss well and add the salt and the reserved scrambled eggs.
  • Sprinkle on the cilantro and turn out onto a larger platter.
  • Serve hot.
