My Thai Adventure!

I religiously follow a couple of bloggers on Instagram, WordPress, Facebook etc… A lot of my recipes are often inspired by or adapted from the recipes of these wonderful bloggers. This morning while I was randomly browsing through @pinchofyum’s blog, I came across this delicious looking plate of Pad Thai Noodles and I instantly decided to make some for myself! πŸ˜€

Method:
  1. Place or soak the uncooked noodles in a bowl of hot water for about 15-16 minutes. Drain them and set aside OR Cook according to the instructions mentioned on the package
  2. Chop all the vegetables and set aside
  3. Stir in the sauce ingredients in a jar, measuring cup or a bowl
  4. Heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the veggies and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until tender-crisp. Do not overcook else they’ll get soggy
  5. Now add the noodles to the hot pan and stir fry for a minute, gently toss. Add the sauce and stir fry for another minute or two, until the sauce sticks and coats noodles well
  6. Push the noodles aside to one side of the pan and pour the beaten egg into the pan and let it sit for about 30 seconds approx
  7. Now toss everything together and let the egg mixture stick to the noodles. Everything will start getting a little sticky. Add salt & pepper to taste and mix well
  8. Remove from heat. Stir in the peanuts and herbsΒ 

Serve hot with a dash of lemon or lime juice! πŸ™‚

 

Tips:

  1. Add any vegetables or protein of your choice
  2. Reduce the amount of Chili Paste if you are sensitive to spice or heat
