Step 1 Add the pepper, mustard powder, bell pepper, and soy sauce to a small bowl and use a fork to mash and mix well. Set aside. Place noodles in lukewarm water to cover. Soak until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain.
Step 2 Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a small nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add the curry and turmeric and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the chicken base and stir to dissolve. Add the red pepper mixture and 1/2 cup water and mix well. Remove from heat and set aside.
Step 3 In a wok or large, deep nonstick saute pan, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, and shallots and stir-fry until just wilted, about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Step 4 Add the broccoli and cauliflower and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons water and stir. Add the carrots, cabbage, and chilies and cook until al dente, abut 2 minutes. Pus the vegetables to the side to make a well. Add the egg. Scramble until almost set, then incorporate into the other ingredients.
Step 5 Push the vegetables to the side and add the red pepper mixture. Bring to temperature, then mix thoroughly. Taste; if hotter than you prefer, add the honey to mellow the flavor. Add the noodles and toss to combine. Cook to heat through. Stir in the scallions. Serve immediately.
