  1. If using dried noodles, soak according to pack instructions. Cut the stalks off the coriander and finely chop them (set the leaves aside for later). Tip the chopped stalks into a mortar along with the garlic and ginger, then pound to form an aromatic paste.

  2. Heat a wok and, when smoking, tip in the oil, then the paste. Cook for a few secs, then stir in the pepper and peas. Cook a few mins more until softened, then pour in the egg and chilli. Stir around the pan until cooked, then add the sugar, fish and oyster sauces. Drain the noodles, then add to the pan. Toss everything together, adding a little water if the noodles seem a bit dry. Just before serving, stir in the beansprouts and lime juice, then place on a serving plate and scatter over the roasted peanuts, spring onions and coriander leaves.

I think this recipe doesn't match the ingredients - has there been a mistake?

Does anyone from Good Food ever read these comments!! FoodJunkie is right, the ingredients and method do not match. You can make up your own methods but it would be nice to have the correct recipe!!!

The Method for this recipe is incorrect. Would be grateful if the correct method is added. Used the ingredients and did my own version skipping the egg to make it vegetarian-friendly and still went down a treat.
