So now here is today’s post. It seems as if anyone who has ever eaten Thai food has had Phad Thai. It is a basic. So, for our recipe today I am sharing the Phad Thai recipe that we learned to make in our Thai cooking class . It is not hard, and it tastes amazing!
10 oz fresh rice noodles – (or dried noodles, soaked in water for about 15 minutes)
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon garlic chopped
1 tablespoon dried shrimp
1 cup tofu chopped into small pieces
6 tablespoons of chicken stock or water
2 eggs beaten
3 tablespoons roasted peanuts chopped
1/4 cup chives cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup bean sprouts
2 limes cut into wedges
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons tamarind juice
Put the oil into a wok and fry the garlic, dried shrimp, and tofu until the garlic turns golden brown and then add the rice noodles. Keep stirring over a high heat. Then add the chicken stock and stir fry until the noodles are soft. Turn the heat down and add the sauce ingredients and stir well to combine.
Add the eggs and stir fry until the eggs are cooked and well combined with the noodles. Add the peanuts and chives. Stir fry to combine and then add the bean sprouts and stir together. Turn off the heat and save garnished with lime wedges.
