  1. Soak the rice noodles in room-temperature water for 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and tamarind paste. Whisk together over medium-high heat until it reaches a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Set the sauce aside.
  4. Heat a large cast-iron pan or wok over high heat. Add peanut oil, scallions, chiles, and garlic. Stir and cook until the scallions soften.
  5. Incorporate the carrots into the pan, stirring them for about 1 minute. Then add the bean sprouts and continue stirring.
  6. Add the soaked rice noodles to the pan and stir to distribute all the ingredients evenly. Heat the noodles through for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Combine the sauce with the ingredients in the pan, stirring well.
  8. Add the tofu to the pan, stirring to incorporate it. Remove the pan from the heat.
  9. If desired, garnish with peanuts, bean sprouts, scallions, and red chiles.
  10. Serve the dish immediately and enjoy!
