Pad Thai

Pad Thai 
I love Pad Thai and it is difficult to find good Thai food here in Vancouver.  I found this recipe from Chez Pim  where she describes in detail how to make Pad Thai that even a beginner like me could follow easily and adapt where I couldn't get the exact ingredients.

Luckily for me I could find most of the ingredients at Osaka Supermarket.

Sauce should be adjusted to suit your own taste
1/4 cup tamarind paste ( I strained 8oz of tamarind paste with 2 cups of warm water and got approx 1 1/4 cup of tamarind)
1 round palm sugar + 1 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup fish sauce 

The sauce should taste salty first, then sour, then sweet.

Rice Noodle 
Chinese Chives 
Prawn or Chicken 
Firm Traditional Tofu 
Ground Peanuts 
  1. Fry tofu till nicely brown, set aside 
  2. Fry prawns and/or chicken with garlic till almost cooked, set aside 
  3. Cook rice noodle till al dente, set aside 
  4. Heat 2-3 tbsp oil, add garlic, rice noodle and some sauce and fry till noodles are done.  Move to side of pan
  5. Crack egg and leave for 10-15 sec then stir the noodles in
  6. Add beansprouts, chinese chives, tofu, prawn and/or chicken, peanut and stir fry everything together.
Serve with lime, chilli, sugar and fish sauce.
