Pad Thai: A taste of Thailand

Pad Thai is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as a street food and at casual local eateries in Thailand. It’s made with soaked dried rice noodles, which are stir-fried with eggs and chopped firm tofu, and flavored with tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper and palm sugar. It’s typically served with lime wedges and chopped roasted peanuts.

Ingredients: Pad Thai

  • 16 ounces dried rice noodles
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • 1/4 cup tamarind pulp
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup dried shrimp
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 red chili pepper, minced
  • 1 tablespoon palm sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Instructions: Pad Thai

  1. Soak the rice noodles in warm water for 30 minutes, or until softened.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, tofu, tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic, shallot, chili pepper, and palm sugar in a small bowl.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok or skillet over medium heat.
  4. Drain the rice noodles and add them to the wok. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until softened.
  5. Push the noodles to the sides of the wok and add the egg mixture to the center. Scramble the eggs until cooked through.
  6. Combine the noodles and eggs and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through.
  7. Serve immediately with chopped roasted peanuts and lime wedges.


  • For a spicier Pad Thai, add more chili pepper.
  • For a sweeter Pad Thai, add more palm sugar.
  • To make Pad Thai ahead of time, cook the noodles and tofu according to the instructions. Then, stir-fry the eggs and vegetables in a separate pan. When you’re ready to serve, combine the noodles, eggs, and vegetables in a wok or skillet and stir-fry until heated through.
