1 Place noo­dles in a large heat­proof bowl; cover with boil­ing water. Stand for 15 min­utes or un­til just ten­der. Drain noo­dles, toss with 2 tea­spoons of the oil; cover with plas­tic wrap to pre­vent dry­ing out. 2 Stir the boil­ing water, sugar, ta­marind, juice and ta­mari in a small jug or bowl un­til sugar dis­solves.

4 Add egg to wok; swirl to coat base and side. Cook egg for 1 minute or un­til just set. Trans­fer to a board; coarsely chop.

5 Heat re­main­ing oil and gar­lic in wok; stir-fry for 1 minute or un­til fra­grant. Re­turn veg­eta­bles to wok with noo­dles, three-quar­ters of the green onion and sauce mix­ture; stir-fry for 2 min­utes or un­til noo­dles are heated. Stir in chopped egg.

6 Re­move from heat. Sprin­kle over half the peanuts and half the shal­lots; toss to com­bine.
