Instructions

  1. Soak rice stick noodles

    • Soak dried rice stick noodles in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes until soften and drain completely.


  2. Stir fry noodles and other ingredients

    • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for sauce and mix well until tamarind and sugar has dissolved.
    • Heat a wok over high heat, add cooking oilandadd sliced chicken.
    • Cook for 5 minutes. Add tofu and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden edges. 
    • Add finely chopped onions, garlic and radish. Stir-fry everything together for about 1 to 2 minutes
    • Add sprouts and sauce then add noodles. Stir-fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, until noodles absorb sauce completely leaving no liquid in wok. If your noodles are cooking slowly, add more water about 2 tablespoons at a time.
    • If your noodles are sticking together too much, add 1 tablespoon of oil at a time.
    • Push everything to side of wok to make room for eggs.


  3. Add eggs into fry

    • Add a bit more oil and crack 2 eggs into wok. Don’t scramble yet, let them cook half way though.
    • Then break yolks and start to scramble. This way you will have nice egg bites. Now mix scrambled eggs and noodles together by tossing and stirring. 
    • Add ¾ crushed peanuts and mix well.


Plate and Serve!

Serve with extra peanuts on the side, lemon wedges, red chili flakes and spring onions.
