Looking for the best ever authentic Pad Thai Recipe? I brought this easy recipe back from my last trip to Bangkok and it's AMAZING! You will never order take-out again!
Dissolve Tamarind Paste and sugar in hot water while stirring and add the remaining ingredients. Taste and add more tamarind or fish sauce if more acidity/saltiness is needed. For extra sweetness and more sugar. Just try and find the perfect balance. Good Asian cooking is all about balancing out flavors!
At this point, we add the noodles and half of our prepared pad thai sauce. Stir and keep the noodles moving. Add some more water if your noodles are still a bit too hard. Using your spoon or chopsticks, move the noodles to one corner of the pan, add a bit of oil and add the whisked egg. Sway the pan and stir the egg for about 10 seconds. Now toss everything.
Serve Bangkok style with chopped peanuts, chili powder and a fresh quartered lime.
