  • 2 bulbs of pickled garlic, thinly sliced (garnish)

  1. Soak the noodles in water for about 15 minutes; take about a third of the sen yai and cut the ribbons into short pices (about 2″ long).The remaining two thirds of the noodles should be plunged into boiling water, and cooked until “toothy” then removed and placed on the serving plate.
  2. If desired the tofu can be marinated in some dark soy to which a couple of sliced chilis are added.
  3. The third of the noodles that have been chopped are fried in hot oil until crispy.
  4. The remaining ingredients, except the pickled garlic, are stir fried in a medium hot wok until cooked through (if you want the sauce thickened add a little rice flour or corn starch) and then poured over the boiled noodles. The fried noodles and the pickled garlic are then added as a garnish.
