2. Heat up the wok and stir fry the rest of the onion and garlic until you can smell the aroma. Throw in the prawn or chicken and keep on stirring until it is cooked.
3. Pour in water spinach, tofu, and tomato. Stir for a while before adding in the noodles, beansprout, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and sambal that we have prepared earlier.
