Pad Thai (Chicken) ผัดไทย

Pad Thai is one of the world’s most beloved noodle dishes. Authentic Pad Thai on the streets of Thailand has a distinct fishy/prawny “funk” (which sounds thoroughly unappetizing but is actually completely addictive and the very essence of true Thai street food). Pad Thai is a Thai noodle stir fry with a sweet-savory sour sauce scattered with crushed peanuts. It’s made with thin, flat rice noodles, and almost always has bean sprouts, garlic chives, scrambled egg, firm tofu and a protein – the most popular being chicken or prawns/shrimp. Ingredients:

  • 200g chicken, shrimp, pork or tofu

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g of finely chopped peanuts
  • 1 ½ tbsp tamarind paste
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar or palm sugar
  • 2tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 ½ tbsp oyster sauce
How to cook

Place dried noodles in a large bowl and cover with boiling water, soak for 5 minutes, then drain and rinse under cold water. For the sauce, mix the tamarind paste with sugar fish sauce and oyster sauce in a small bowl. Heat the oil in a skillet or pan over high heat, add chopped garlic and onion and cook for 30 seconds.

Once cooked, mix, add beansprouts, noodles and sauce and toss gently for about 1 – 2 minutes until sauce is absorbed by the noodles. Add chives and half of the peanuts and remove from the heat.
