Step two: Cook the noodles and pak chop
Chuck 600g of noodles into a large mixing bowl with the pak choy and a generous pinch of salt.
Once the kettle has boiled, tip enough water into the bowl to cover the noodles and pak choy fully.
Cover with a plate and leave to cook for five or six minutes while you get on with the rest of the dish in the next steps. Once ready, the noodles should be soft and pliable.
Step three: Fry the shallots
Tip four tablespoons of vegetable oil into a medium frying pan and place it over high heat.
Once the oil begins to shimmer and loosen, tip in three-quarters of the shallots and season with a pinch of salt.
Fry for six to eight minutes, tossing occasionally until it is light golden and nearly crisp. Dress the noodles in the next step while you wait.
Step four: Dress the dish
Once the noodles and pak choy have softened, drain them through a colander over the sink and tip them back into the bowl.
Add one tablespoon of gochujang, one tablespoon of tahini and a pinch of salt. Toss everything together and loosen it with a splash of hot water from the kettle if necessary.
Step five: Fry the eggs
Once the shallots are ready, carefully crack in two eggs. Fry for three to four minutes, until the whites are set but the yolks still have a wobble – the shallots should become deep golden brown in this time.
Step six: Serve
Divide the noodles between bowls, lower an egg and some crispy shallots onto each portion, then top with the remaining raw shallots. Tuck in.
