The proteins

A mixture of hen, bacon and egg retains issues attention-grabbing. Be at liberty to vary the hen to a different protein. However I actually urge you to make use of the bacon. It provides an excellent flavour pop that replaces the little bits of Chinese language BBQ Pork that you just get in conventional Singapore Noodles.

Ingredients in Singapore Chicken Vermicelli Noodles
  • Rooster – I like to make use of boneless, skinless hen thighs as a result of they’re juicier than breast and tenderloin, although they work simply positive too. We solely use 150g/5 oz, which is round one giant thigh. Don’t neglect we have now bacon and egg too!

  • Curry powder and salt – To season the hen. Easy however by no means boring, as a result of we get flavour from the sauce too! For the curry powder, you simply want the common sort you get from grocery shops, like Clives and Keens (Australian manufacturers). No must seek out an obscure Singaporean curry powder! Keep away from scorching curry powder – until you need your noodles spicy. 🙂

  • Bacon – Streaky bacon, for the very best flavour. Although lean bacon will work too (we name it “shortcut bacon” right here in Australia, the spherical eye half that’s devoid of flavour – oops, I imply fats 😂).

  • Eggs – Two eggs which we’ll use to make a skinny omelette crepe which we then slice into ribbons. Signature function of conventional Singapore Noodles which we’re preserving!

Whereas you can also make this recipe with glass noodles, it isn’t fairly nearly as good as a result of the noodles are so slippery, the sauce doesn’t follow them very nicely!

  • Garlic and onion – Stir fry staples!

  • Capsicum (bell pepper) – I just like the crimson strips in conventional Singapore Noodles so I saved them for this recipe.

  • Bean sprouts and child spinach – “Seize and toss” greens that helps make this recipe quick to make whereas including extra greens so it’s a nicely rounded me. Be at liberty to make use of extra of both, or substitute with different cook-able leafy greens. Or you might be an actual insurgent and make an effort to cut some greens your self!

SINGAPORE NOODLE SAUCE

And right here’s what you want for the sauce, which is identical because the sauce utilized in conventional Singapore Noodles.

  • Chinese language cooking wine (“Shaoxing wine”) is a vital ingredient for making really “restaurant customary” Asian noodles. With out, the flavour is lacking one thing. Substitute with Mirin, cooking sake or dry sherry. Non alcoholic substitute – 1/3 cup (80 ml) low sodium hen inventory. Count on to toss the noodles for an additional minute or two as it should require a bit further time for the sauce to scale back.

  • Curry powder – Simply the common stuff you get from grocery shops, like Clives and Keens (Australian manufacturers). Keep away from scorching – until you need the warmth!

  • White pepper somewhat than black is the usual in Asian cooking. The flavour is a bit more energizing than black pepper, and also you additionally can not see it. Whereas in the event you use black pepper (which you completely can) you will notice little black specks on the noodles.

Curry powder
You simply want a curry powder type common grocery shops on this recipe. These are two standard manufacturers right here in Australia – Clive of India and Eager’s.

Within the final week, he’s been to the vet 7 occasions resulting from what was lastly decided to be acute gastro, although at one stage there was a priority it was a way more critical situation (similar to megaesophagus). Within the nearly 12 years I’ve had him, I’ve by no means seen him in such misery, ache and to not point out the floods of un-controllable💩 (the phrases “explosion” and “flood gates” come to thoughts).

There’s been a handful of midnight hospital visits, a few all-nighters, and far time spent making an attempt to determine meals he’ll eat that’s laryngeal paralysis* and gastro-friendly.

Let’s simply say canned pet food doesn’t make the reduce. I do know, I do know, nobody is shocked!

* That is the situation he was recognized with earlier this yr during which his larynxes are paralysed which implies he’s at excessive threat of meals moving into his lungs. This causes lung infections which will be lethal. So he’s on a particular food plan as of late.

Canned pet food – exhausting go!

Anyway, in a nutshell, it’s been a tough week for poor Dozer. Properly, really, it’s been 10 days now. He appears to be on the tail finish of it now although nonetheless not again to his regular self. Proper now he’s sitting beneath the desk at my toes, clearly feeling a bit nauseous although nowhere close to as excessive because it was final week. (He has anti-nausea drugs. I skipped this morning pondering he was okay. I’ll be placing him again on them for some time, I feel!).

However he’s a lot, significantly better than he was on the weekend which was fairly horrific. The worst half was seeing him in such ache, discovering him curled up in the course of the night time beneath a bush within the far nook of the backyard. I knew one thing was actually improper. 😢

I’m so grateful he’s feeling higher now!

Oh – however ending with a bit enjoyable: right here he’s within the early phases of his gastro once I resorted to man-buns:

However by the point the weekend rolled round and after the twentieth butt wash, we caved and shaved his butt. You don’t must see a photograph of that. 😂

Hope to carry extra constructive Dozer information within the subsequent publish! – Nagi x
