Mantis Shrimp Curry Noodle made from scratch / Mie Kari (kare) udang ronggeng

Selam everybody.....Merhaba from Turkey.

This is my kind of comfort food. Nothing more indulges and fulfills my longing for my mom's cook than this hearty, warming and rich flavor of this curry noodle. This bowl always my number one choice whenever İ want to be "selfish" in my dinner table 😏
Selfish.... yes cause my husband doesn't like this kind of curry. He prefer simple food with "simple" flavor 😔

Whenever İ want to cook curry..İ always remember my mom. She is the best cooks around the house. İ learnt many foods from her. We (me and my siblings) all grew up with my mom's heavenly yummy food. İ Love and always remember her curries especially crab and seafood curry.
And my curry noodle also inspired by my mom's curry style. Traditionally we eat curry with white steamed rice. But today İ like to combine my mom's style curry with another İndonesian staple; Mie or Noodle

Mantis Shrimp / Udang Ronggeng

So to spice up my mid-week İ make this Mantis Shrimp Curry Noodle. İ saw this edible creature at my local farmer market few days ago. And just like saw and old friend İ didn't meet long time, enthused İ bought them all 3 kilos! The seller already know me as their regular customer who loves seafood so much...much much more than local people here 😁 so they gave me pretty cheap price--- hhhhmm...maybe because no one else would buy this mantis shrimp that look "scary" for local people... hhhh 😁

Mantis shrimp or mantis prawn is exotic (scary thing to my lil daugther 😄 ) edible sea creatures that rarely seen on my daily menu. Mantis shrimp had several name around the world. İn İndonesian it’s called Udang Ronggeng (It moves similiar to Ronggeng dancer) , or Udang Sentadu or Udang Lipan/ centipede (It looks like a centipede).
