This is an easy and favorable recipe that has easy prep. and cooking. A couple of notes: 1. If you can only find rice noodles in a 10 ounce pack -- that's fine. 2. I did not have any tamarind sauce, but found directions for a substitute: A mixture of vinegar and sugar. I used a 1:1 mixture. 3. I also did not use Shrimp paste. A recommendation was to use a tablespoon of fish sauce. But, instead of adding it to the mixture, I added it in Step 4 where you would add the shrimp paste. 4. The recipe does not tell you when to add the spring onions. I added them during Step 5 when you add the egg (which, by the way can be made ahead of time). You could also add it during Step 4. All-in-all, a great recipe with really good flavors! Read More
