Soak the noodles in ample warm water until supple, about 15 minutes, drain

water returns to the boil. Drain again.

Heat the oil for deep-frying to 375 degrees and deep-fry the cut bean curd.
Be sure the pat the bean curd dry on a paper towel first so that it will
not spatter fat on you. Drain the bean curd and set aside.

few minues and then add the shrimp, drained noodles, beaten eggs, and
deep-fried bean curd. Toss well and chow for 3 to 4 minutes over

chow or stir for a few more minutes until the noodles are hot and tender.

Place on a serving platter with the garnishes, which are an integral part
of the dish.
