Pad thai is a quick and easy dish, which is served as fast food in Thailand. I guess I spend about 20 minutes making it. You can use canned bean sprouts, but the fresh ones taste very much better.
4 ss tamarindpaste
12 tablespoons water
8 tbsp fish sauce
8 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tbsp soy sauce
1 packet of glass noodles
5 tbsp rapeseed oil
4 cloves finely chopped garlic
1 pk tofu diced
200 g bean sprouts
6 finely shredded spring onions
150 g peanuts
2 ts chiliflak
200 g shrimp
You start with the sauce, which consists of tamarind paste, water, fish sauce, brown sugar and soy sauce, which are stirred together and set aside.
The next thing you need to do is boil a pot of water for the glass noodles. Let them soak in the water for 5 minutes, before rinsing them in cold water and setting them aside.
Heat canola oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the garlic and let it saute a little in the oil, before adding the egg and stirring until it starts to resemble scrambled eggs. Stir in tofu and stir for 2 min.
Add bean sprouts, noodles, sauce, spring onions, peanuts, chili flakes and shrimp. Let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
