  • 2-3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper powder

Combine " sauce " ingredients in one bowl, stir well till sugar dissolves and leave it aside.
Heat oil in wok or frying pan, add white parts of onion and minced garlic, chillies and ginger.
Stir fry for 1 minute and add cabbage and stir fry another 2 minutes.
Now add the 1/3 of sauce and noodles, stir fry everything 1-2 minutes on medium to high heat.
Add tofu and keep mixing, It will break up into small bits and be distributed throughout the dish.
Keep adding sauce and continue stir fry about 4-5 minutes.
Add bean sprouts, folding them into hot noodles. Turn off the heat.
Check the seasoning.
Serve hot in a plate, sprinkle the green parts of the spring onion, coriander and roasted peanuts.
