Singapore Chowmein (Rice Noodles)

Rice noodles and vegetables flavored with curry powder and soya sauce make this oriental dish irresistible. Rice noodles are very delicate and require practically no cooking. All you need to do is dunk them in hot water for a few minutes and then drain out the water and use them.
