Instructions

  1. 1

    Put the noodles in a large bowl, cover with boiling water, and leave for 8 minutes, or until soft. Drain and put to one side. Meanwhile, put 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large wok over a high heat and swirl around the pan. Add the beaten egg and whisk it around the wok for about a minute, or until it begins to set – don’t let it set completely – then spoon it out and put to one side.


  2. 2

    Add the remaining oil to the pan, then add the shrimp paste (if using), and chillies and stir. With the heat still high, add the chicken and stir vigorously for 5 minutes, or until it is no longer pink. Stir through the spring onions, fish sauce, lime juice, and sugar and toss together well. Cook for a few minutes until the sugar has dissolved, then season well with salt and black pepper. Return the egg to the pan.


  3. 3

    Add the noodles to the pan and toss together to coat with the sauce, then add half the peanuts and half the coriander and toss again. Transfer to a large shallow serving bowl and scatter over the rest of the peanuts and coriander. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
