A recipe which is unique and flavored noodles with fine noodles of rice vermicelli and stir fried vegetables. It is an ideal meal for lunch or dinner and in India it is generally served as a street food. It is simple and easy to prepare and bears a strong resemblance to our semiya or upma vermicelli recipe.
Indian recipes have a lot of influence abroad and can be easily seen in general in a cosmopolitan city. The cuisine's most notable influence comes from neighboring countries and regions. Singapore noodles are one of those easy, flavored recipes that are very similar to our own vermicelli recipes.
Like I said earlier singapore noodle recipes are truly unique and in my opinion it is a fusion of 2 cuisines. These are not only chinese recipes, as most of the Singaporean recipes use curry powder which is also evident in this recipe. So I wouldn't hesitate to call it a fusion of Indian and Chinese cuisine.
