Directions

  1. Soak rice noodles in a bowl with enough hot water to cover until slightly softened, about 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Whisk vinegar, fish sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, and tamarind paste in a bowl until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Mix paprika and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir eggs in the hot oil until lightly cooked. Transfer eggs to a bowl.
  5. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir green onions and garlic together quickly, about 10 seconds.
  6. Stir tofu and paprika mixture into green onion mixture; toss to combine.
  7. Toss noodles with tofu mixture until mixed; pour vinegar mixture over noodles and toss to coat.
  8. Fold eggs and bean sprouts into noodles; cook and stir until sauce is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with crushed peanuts.

Sorry to say that I did not like this at all. In retrospect, I would omit the soy sauce, use less fish sauce, more tamarind, no paprika, pepper flakes instead of the cayenne pepper, and balance the whole thing with some tomato paste - all of which makes it an entirely different dish though. Will not be making this again.
