The ingredients will serve 4 persons.
200 grams rice vermicelli
Vegetable oil, to deep-fry
1 beaten egg
200 grams prawns, peeled, deveined
2 heads of pickled garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons sweet tomato sauce (ketchup)
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
2 tablespoons tamarind sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons kaffir lime rind (or pomelo rind)
2 tablespoons fish sauce

Warm-up the oil and, in your hands, form "nests" with the noodles. Deep-fry the nests on both sides until they turn golden. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.
