Finding Rice Noodles and Tamarind Paste was easy, but I’m glad I had some Tiger Prawns in the freezer because all the shrimp I could find was in brine. I had to visit 5 different stores to find Scallions to replace the Garlic Chives. And finding Tofu was just as hard. As for Palm Sugar and unsalted (and peeled) Peanuts, no such luck.
So I had to go with regular, white sugar. In hindsight, I should have sliced the Scallions thinner because they got pretty dominant when I bit into the large pieces. I’ll try to remember that next time. Even though I cut the recipe in half, I still have enough for lunch today. It tasted great, and I’m glad I tried it. I was a bit worried it would be too spicy, but it wasn’t. I’m not used to spicy food at all. I even use less salt than most people. As for the recipe, I’ll publish a slideshow on YouTube on how I did it.
