There have been some big changes over at MyKuali and the recipes of all their flavors are getting a bit of ‘tweaking.’ Many times in the past, MyKuali has changed recipes. I’m very curious to see what they’ve done with this one. The first time I tried it was in 2014 and I really enjoyed it then – it ended up on the 2015 Top Ten – let’s see how this new recipe taste.

#2741: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle (2018 Recipe)

#2741: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle (2018 Recipe)

This is the instant noodle that started my fascination with Malaysia. About five years ago I got some samples and was just floored. It hit 7th place back then on the top ten spicy list and was a really big deal. Then it hit #1 on the regular top ten list in 2014. The recipe has changed at least three times since it’s original release I think and this might be the fourth iteration of flavor for Penang White Curry from Mykuali. Let’s not delay – let’s give it a try!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!

#2441: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle (Japan Version) - Malaysia - Japan - hokkien mee

Here’s the final of the three Japan version MyKuali boxes. This one’s a favorite of mine (as are the other) but lately it’s been a real treat. Here’s a little about Hokkien Prawn from Wikipedia –

Hokkien mee is a dish in Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine that has its origins in the cuisine of China’s Fujian (Hokkien) province. In its most common form, the dish consists of egg noodles and rice noodles stir-fried with egg, slices of pork, prawns and squid, and served and garnished with vegetables, small pieces of lard, sambal sauce and lime (for adding the lime juice to the dish). There is also a vegan varieties

There are two types of Hokkien mee: Hokkien black mee and Hokkien fried mee. Hokkien hae mee (Hokkien prawn noodles) is commonly served in Penang and Singapore while Hokkien char mee (Hokkien black noodles) is commonly served in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley. The dish commonly referred to as “Hokkien mee”, depending on the locality, can mean either Hokkien hae mee or Hokkien char mee. For example, Hokkien mee in Kuala Lumpur refers to Hokkien char mee.

HOKKIEN HAE MEE
(PRAWN NOODLES)
HOKKIEN CHAR MEE
(FRIED NOODLES)
Refers to either the Penang prawn noodle or Singapore prawn noodle Refers to the Kuala Lumpur Hokkien noodle
Soup based (Penang) and stir fried (Singapore) Stir fried
Egg noodles and rice noodles Fat yellow noodles
No dark soya sauce used Dark soya sauce is used
Prawn is the main ingredient with slices of chicken or pork, squid and fish cake. kangkung (water spinach) is common in the Penang version Slices of chicken or pork, squid and cabbage

As you can see, there’s a bit of difference between the many versions. So this one is the soup version popular in Penang but for sale in Singapore. Got it? Let’s check it out!
