I made this Phad Thai recipe/dish when on holiday in Thailand at a cooking class in Chiang Mai (I will leave a link to the cooking school in the summary below).

Cook Time

Serves or Units
1

Ingredients

70-100 grams Thin rice noodles
2-3 Tbsp cooking oil (peanut or canola is good)
1 Tsp Chopped red shallot
10 grams firm bean curd (Tofu) diced into small squares
20 grams Pork or chicken pieces
1 Tbsp dried shrimp
3 Tsp Salted Chinese radish
1 egg
50 grams Garlic chives cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup Bean sprouts
2 Tbsp Crushed roasted peanuts (optional)
1 Lime wedge
1 Tbsp Thai fish sauce (Thai is important as other kinds of fish sauce can be different)
1 Tbsp Sugar (white, brown, or palm)
1 Tbsp Tamarind paste

Preparation

  1. Soak rice noodles in water until soft and drian.
  2. Heat oil in wok over medium heat and fry shallot with a pinch of roasted chilli powder until fragrent and it browns slightly.
  3. Add meat and stir until cooked through
  4. Then add bean curd, dried shrimp, Chinese radish and stir fry briefly before pushing it to the side of the wok to make room for noodles.
  5. Add rice noodles and toss/stir well then add sugar, fish sauce and tamarind with a little water - stir well.
  6. Break in the egg and stir through until done then add chives and bean sprouts and stir everything together only for about 30 - 60 seconds (add a little more oil if necessary to moisten it up).
  7. Transfer to serving dish with roasted peanuts, chilli powder, and lime wedge on the side (you can also simply sprinkle the peanuts over if you wish).

Phad Thai should taste sweet, sour, and salty. I like to sprinkle mine with peanuts, squeeze over the lime wedge liberally, and even add some chopped fresh chillies. 

Prawns can also be added to this dish. 

If the noodles are too dry at the time of cooking add a little oil. 

Overall, this is a wonderful and traditional dish from Thailand but it can be modified in many different ways according to your taste so don't be afraid to experiment.
