Quick Delicious Mee Curry

What? This curry is made from a package? Kidding us?

Its true, the tasty bowl of bihun or rice noodle/vermicelli curry in front of each of us happened to come out from a package.

Well not exactly the whole bowl but the spices, onion and chili paste, seasonings are all magically packed by Tean's , a local food company.

I would not say it tasted as fantastic as what mom used to make but it is good enough. Alhamdulillah.

It can be made even better if we took the time to add all the right ingredients like blanched beansprouts, mustard green veggies, dried friend tofu pok, fish paste bean curd sheets, parang fish balls, fresh medium soft bean curds etc. Well, I happened to buy all that specially for my curry.

Forgot to get some mint leaves, limes, kerang or cockles and fresh ripe pineapple.

So stress free, just add water, seasoning and some chicken pieces. Bring to boil, simmer to cook chicken till tender. Add in one pack freshly squeezed coconut cream. The frozen ones do not taste as good.

Add the bean curd and tofu and cook till soft. Finally just before serving, add the fish balls and tofu.

I blanched some wantan noodles and some bihun. Filled the bowl with noodles, topped with the soup and ingredients and viola! Dinner is served! Sprinkle some fried shallots and some sliced red chilles for extra kick.

One packet rempah/spices makes enough soup for 5 to 6 people. Tean's curry seasoning costs only around RM5 a packet, really value for money and really a time saver.
