    3      teaspoons     dried shrimp
    3      tablespoons   chopped scallions

 Soak the noodles in hot water for at least 12 minutes to soften, then
 drain well.  Combine the sugar, fish sauce, ketchup, and chili sauce in a

 Prepare the garnish ingredients.  Place the dried shrimp in a blender or
 spice grinder and grind until finely shredded.  Arrange the garnishes on a
 plate to serve with the noodles.

 minute.  Add the shrimp and fry for 40 seconds.  Pour in the sauce mixture
 and cook briefly, then add the noodles and toss until thoroughly coated
 with the sauce.  Add half the bean sprouts and cook, continuously tossing
 and stirring, until the bean sprouts have softened.
 
 Transfer to a platter, scattering the remaining bean sprouts over the top=2E
  Serve with the platter of garnishes, allowing guests to add what they
 want, to taste.
