Cooking method

To make the sauce:

  • Put the tamarind juice, palm sugar, sugar, crushed chillies and salt in a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer until the palm sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • Soak the noodles in cold water until soft, about 30 minutes, then rinse under cold water and keep to one side.
  • Bring a wok to a medium heat, add the oil, then the chicken and stir for 2-3 minutes before adding the prawns and stir for another minute.
  • Add the noodles, stir for 1 minute, then add the sauce and stir well to cover the noodles.
  • Bring the noodles to one side of the wok.
  • Add the remaining oil and the beaten eggs.
  • Stir and turn the noodles over on top of the eggs and mix them together.
  • Add the bean sprouts, spring onions, dried chillies and crushed peanuts.
