Pad Thai Recipe by Studio TAC

"Hello there! I'm Sara, of Studio TAC. Today I'm going to share a Pad Thai recipe with you! Pad Thai is one of Thai well known dishes. It’s actually easy to make but the work is probably more on finding ingredients if you are outside Thailand. If you can find them, great ! You will get the right taste and I also have some photos for you to search for those ingredients. I am pretty sure if you have local Asian supermarkets nearby then you will be able to find them.

You will need:

Rice noodles ½ c
Bean sprouts ½ c
Chinese chive ½ c (cut into 1’’ pieces )
Dried shrimp 1 tbsp
Tofu (cut into 1/4” cubes) 1 tbsp
Preserved white radish, chopped 1 tbsp
Shallots, sliced or chopped 1 tbsp
Egg (optional)

For the taste:
Tamarind juice 2 tbsp (soaking the pulp in warm water until soft and squeeze out the thick juice)
Plam sugar 1 tbsp
Fish sauce ½ tbsp

For the side:
Roasted, chopped peanuts
Chilli powder
Freshly squeezed lime juice
Bean sprouts
Chinese chives
For more exotic taste, freshly sliced banana flower (soaked in water and 1 tbsp of lime juice to prevent browning)

How to:
Heat 1 tbsp cooking oil. Fry the shallots and tofu until brown. Add preserved radish and dried shrimp. Add the ingredients for the taste: tamarind juice, palm sugar and fish sauce. Stir well. Put rice noodle, add 1 tbsp water to make it soft and stir well. After this you may want to taste it to add more seasonings, if desired. Add egg, wait until it is half-cooked. Add bean sprouts and Chinese chives and stir well. Enjoy !
