3. Now all of the prep for the pad thai is ready we can begin to cook, In a large pan add a 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the red onions and prawns until both have colour. Next remove the soaked noodles from the water, then add spring onions, tamarind, sweet chilli, sugar and a couple of drops of water. Fry the pad Thai for around 5 minutes until all the ingredients have mingled together.
4. By now the pad Thai is practically finished, just add the beansprouts, 1 tsp of chilli flake (optional if you like it spicy) then add the fried tofu. Next push the pad thai to the side of the pan. Add a little oil if needed to the other side of the pan and crack the eggs and cook them almost like a omelette. When cooked mix all together and season the pad thai with fish sauce, and check that the noodles are cooked, if not fry a little longer until cooked.
