Firstly, create the fritters. Combine all the dry ingredients and once well mixed, gradually add your water until you get a lumpy batter. Set aside and allow the yeast and baking powder to work their magic.
Heat enough oil in a wok for deep frying. Add a few spoonsful of batter into hot oil and fry until golden brown. Repeat until all the mixture is used. Drain the oil and cut the fritters into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
Heat some oil in a large wok and add your shallots and garlic. Fry until fragrant.
Add the spice paste and fry for another 2 minutes.
Add the fried tofu cubes, the fritters and the bok choy. Stir and cook for one more minute.
Add the noodle and stir to mix. Now, push the noodles to the side of the wok, crack in the eggs and quickly scramble them. Bring the noodles back to the centre of the wok and combine. Add your bok choy leaves and beansprouts. Fry for one more minute until the ingredients are well mixed and the noodles are dry. Garnish with sliced chillies and crispy shallots. Serve immediately.
