Travel Diary :: Camp Food Recipe: Foil Packed Spicy Singaporean Noodles

When I ask people what they would cook when they go out camping, often I hear "try damper" ... but I can't eat that every day I'm out camp and it's so bland for someone who has a palate accustomed to a range of Asian flavours. So I tried out making Singaporean noodles without a wok but instead using a foil pack on the BBQ. Wow, it came out so delicious, easy to make and more important no lifting of a heavy wok and scrubbing all the noodles that's stuck to the bottom. Ideally, if you are going out camping you can have the ingredients to make Singaporean noodles prepared and thrown into a foil pack so that all you have to do when you get to the camp site is put it in the camp fire or on the BBQ. When you use the foil pack, there is a crispy noodle layer that forms on the bottom that you can peel off and its so delicious too. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook.

This is what you need and what you need to do:

IngredientsFoil Packs (per single serving)

Heavy Duty Foil
200g rice vermicelli
1 egg slightly beaten
1 cup shredded zucchinis
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 cup of cut up shallots
2 tablespoon curry powder
2 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce

You can do the following steps before you set out to camp and put them in a container or at camp if you have the facilities
1. Soak vermicelli in cold water for 15  minutes until softened and drain.
2. Pour boiling water over vermicelli in a colander
3. Mix curry power with 1tbs of water. Add half to the noodles in the colander and mix with a spoon (or hands if its cooled down).
4. Add all the vegetables and the remaining curry powder and toss it with the noodles. Add the beaten egg.
5. Mix sesame oil, fish sauce and soy sauce.
6. Transfer noodle and vegetables onto a heavy duty foil pack for a serving and pour the seasoning sauce.
7. Wrap tightly, folding the sides over and then rolling the ends so its well covered and secured.
8. Place the foil pack on the BBQ for 10-15 minutes.
9. It's then ready to serve and you can have it with shredded BBQ chicken or oven roasted turkey slices you brought along in containers or just vegetarian noodles by itself.
Very aromatic, appetising, healthy, easy and delicious!
