1 pkg Sunrise Fried Tofu , cubed
227g pad thai noodles
3 eggs , beaten
2 tsp garlic , minced
½ cup carrot , julienned or grated
½ cup cilantro , chopped
2 cups bean sprouts
½ green onion stem , diced
2-3 tbsp cooking oil
2 tbsp Tamarind paste
⅓ cup brown sugar
6 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp sriracha chili (to taste)
½ cup water
2 tbsp soya sauce
⅓ cup ketchup (to taste)
¼ tsp pepper
¼ cup peanuts (optional garnish) , chopped and roasted


  1. Soak pad thai noodles in a bowl of warm water for 25-30 minutes, or until limp but still too firm to eat.
  2. Drain and rinse noodles with cold water. Place in a bowl and cover with a dampened paper towel to avoid hardening.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Stir well to dissolve the paste and sugar. Set aside.
  4. Warm a wok over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 tbsp of oil, green onions and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Add the tofu and stir-fry for 2 minutes, then add carrots.
  6. Move ingredients to the side of the wok and add the remaining 2 tbsp of oil to the center of the wok. Add beaten eggs and stir-fry briefly to scramble.
  7. Add the drained noodles and 1/3 of the sauce.
  8. Stir-fry everything together for 1-2 minutes. Keep adding sauce and stir-fry for 3-6 minutes until sauce is absorbed and noodles are soft but chewy.
  9. Turn off heat and add the bean sprouts and cilantro. Place dish and garnish with peanuts if desired.
