  • 1

    Separate the tamarind pulp. Mix the tamarind pulp and water in a small bowl to break up the pulp. If too thick, add 1-2 tbsp more hot water. Press the mixture through a fine-meshed strainer and discard the solids. Should yield ~¼ cup of tamarind puree.

  • 2

    Mix the sauce. In a small mixing bowl, mix the diluted tamarind paste with brown sugar, fish sauce, and oyster sauce and mix until combined. Set aside.

  • 3

    Cook the noodles. Cook noodles according to the instructions on the package until al dente or slightly underdone. Drain and set aside.

  • 4

    Prepare the chicken. Pat chicken to dry, slice into thin strips, and marinate with light soy sauce, fish sauce, cornstarch, and water.

  • 5

    Cook the chicken. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok or large non-stick skillet, add chicken and sear until golden and just cook through (~2-3 mins). Remove and set aside.

  • 6

    Cook shallots and garlic. Heat 1 tbsp oil in the same pan. Sauté shallots until translucent, then add in the garlic and continue cooking until lightly browned.

  • 7

    Add the tofu and dried shrimp. Gently sauté for 2-3 mins.

  • 8

    Add the noodles and sauce. Next, add the noodles and sauce and gently toss until the sauce is incorporated.
