My parents were here last two days. My father loves curry mee, especially home-cooked (by his only daughter- me of course :)).
I found the recipe in a magazine (Jelita- if I'm not mistaken), dated back in the 80's. My mum subscribed to a few women magazine, and she kept lots of cut-out recipes from those magazine. We've been making curry mee using this recipe since I was still in primary school.
Here's the recipe:
1kg yellow noodles (mee kuning) - blanch in hot water
1 kg shellfish (kerang-rebus ambil isi)
1/2 kg prawns (medium- shelled)
10-12 fish balls (cut in halves)
