Combine PadThai sauce with water, mix well and set aside. 
Heat the pan with vegetable oil. Allow the oil to heat up and add the garlic onions and stir-fry for one minute then add the tofu and cook for another minute, until tofu turns slightly brown. Add the noodles to the pan. Add the PadThai sauce, sweet radish, chilli flakes and salt. Stir-fry the noodles for 2 minutes. Add in bean sprouts and green onions.
