Pad Thai… sorta

This is a take on one of the most iconic Thai dishes: Pad Thai.  As always with Thai food, there are lots of ingredients, and loooots of chopping, but once prepared, the cooking takes minutes.


  • Red curry paste
  • Chopped Garlic
  • Chopped Ginger
  • Chopped Chili
  • Chopped Coriander, including the stem
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Chicken Breast, Sliced
  • Rice Noodles
  • Chopped Scallions
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Cherry Tomatoes, havled
  • Fresh lime juice or Rice vinegar
  • Whole egg
  • Fish sauce
  • Caster Sugar
  • Fried onions

As i said:  Chop, Chop and Chop some more. Soak the rice noodles in boiling water for about 4 minutes depending on the type u use (do not overcook, or it will be horrible)

In a wok, add some oil and fry off curry past, garlic, ginger, chili, coriander and sesame seeds. Add the chicken and cook for a couple of minuts. Add Sugar, fish sauce, vinegar and some fried onions. Now add the drained noodles, tomatoes, bean sprouts and scallions. Finally make room in the wok to fry the egg. When cooked, combine the loot.

Sprinkle with some more fried onions and serve.
