Method for Drunken Noodles and Chicken with Tofu, 'Gai Pad Kee Mao'

Soak the noodles in water for about 15 minutes; take about a third of them and cut the ribbons into short pices (about 2" long). The remaining two thirds of the noodles should be plunged into boiling water, and cooked until 'toothy' then removed and placed on the serving plate.

If desired the tofu can be marinated in some dark soy to which a couple of sliced chilis are added.

The third of the noodles that have been chopped are fried in hot oil until crispy.

The remaining ingredients, except the pickled garlic, are stir fried in a medium hot wok until cooked through (if you want the sauce thickened add a little rice flour) and then poured over the boiled noodles. Add the green peppercorn near the end of the cooking process, as they don't require a great deal of cooking. The fried noodles and the pickled garlic are then added as a garnish.

    Just a note that I tried the drunken noodles this weekend! Despite making a bit more than was easy to handle, turned out quite well, and I'm looking forward to making it again (probably cutting the recipe in half next time as this completely filled my wok - lol). Noodles turned out quite well with your suggestions! Thanks again! When I get to try the Tom Kha Salmon I'll let you know! =o)

    The sauce is extremely pungent, so watch the quantity carefully. A very good main dish.
