Prep:45min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:57min 

  1. Whisk chicken stock, tamarind paste, soy sauce, oyster sauce, chilli sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice and sugar together in a small bowl to make a smooth sauce.
  2. Heat sesame oil in a wok or large pan over high heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add chicken and prawns; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Push chicken and prawns to the sides of the wok to make a space in the centre. Pour eggs and scramble until firm, 2 to 3 minutes. Add courgetti and sauce; cook and stir, adding water if needed, about 3 minutes. Add spring onions and about 3/4 of the bean sprouts; cook and stir until combined, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Remove wok from heat and sprinkle peanuts over courgetti. Serve garnished with remaining bean sprouts and fresh basil.
