Method

  1. Tip the beaten egg onto a plate and coat the tofu in it. On a plate, mix the cornflour, sesame seeds and seasoning and dip the tofu pieces into it. Set aside.

  2. Heat the wok and add 2 tbsp of the oil, plus the carrots, and stir-fry until tender, adding a few splashes of water if they start to stick. Add the chilli, garlic, ginger and most of the spring onions, and fry for a few more mins. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions, drain, then toss into the vegetables, along with the syrup and soy.

  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. Carefully shallow-fry the tofu pieces, a few mins each side, until golden. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. Scatter with the remaining spring onions and serve with the noodles and a little extra soy sauce, if you like.

I enjoyed it. But I did change some things, had turkey slices with cornflakes, and couldn't find stem ginger in the supermarket (live in Belgium), so used a paste of some kind. So it was quite dry, but that's because I'm not used to eating food without sauces.

this is a lovely tasty dish, I used plain flour instead of cornflour and they seem to turn out ok,
i didn't have stem ginger either so just used the ordinary ginger,
i will make it exactly by the recipe again and see how different is, but i'm happy with the result using the subs.
