Soak noodles for 30 minutes in hot tap water; drain and set aside. (Noodles will be flexible, but not soft.)
Mix sugar, water, ketchup, fish sauce, lime juice and cayenne pepper in small bowl; set aside.
Heat oil in wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add tofu and garlic, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Add noodles, stirring constantly to keep from sticking. Add ketchup mixture, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until sauce is absorbed.
Push noodles to side of pan. Add egg and stir until cooked. Add bean sprouts, 1/2 cup green onions and 1/3 cup hazelnuts, stirring until mixed with egg and noodles.
