A trip to Penang is not complete without having a piping hot bowl of Penang White Curry Mee πŸ’•. A bowl of curry mee typically consists of yellow noodles and rice vermicelli with the addition of fried bean curd, cockles, prawns, cuttlefish, cubes of pig's blood and bean sprouts. That darkish red paste is made by blending dried red chillies, garlic and shallots, then slowly fried in oil until fragrant. It acts as a catalyst to provide a spicy β€˜kick’ and bring out the flavours of the curry broth πŸ˜‹.
