Mastering The Art Of Thai Cuisine: Step-by-Step Guide To Pad Thai


Welcome to the world of Thai cuisine! Get ready to master the art of making the most popular Thai dish - Pad Thai. Follow this step-by-step guide to create a delicious and authentic Pad Thai at home.


First, gather all the ingredients. You will need rice noodles, shrimp or chicken, bean sprouts, eggs, tofu, garlic, shallots, peanuts, lime, and Pad Thai sauce. Make sure to have everything prepped and ready to go before you start cooking.


Soak the rice noodles in warm water for about 15 minutes until they are soft. Drain and set aside. In a wok or large pan, heat some oil and add minced garlic and shallots. Stir-fry until fragrant.


Add the protein of your choice - shrimp or chicken - and cook until they are almost done. Push the protein to one side of the pan and crack in two eggs. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked, then mix them with the protein.


Next, add the drained rice noodles to the pan and stir-fry for a few minutes. Then, add the Pad Thai sauce and mix well. Make sure the noodles are evenly coated with the sauce.


Add in the bean sprouts and tofu, and continue to stir-fry for a few more minutes. The noodles should be soft and the sauce should be well incorporated.


Now, it's time to add some crunch! Crushed peanuts are a must in Pad Thai. Sprinkle them on top of the noodles and give it a quick stir.


Squeeze some fresh lime juice over the noodles for a burst of tangy flavor. This will also help balance out the sweetness of the Pad Thai sauce.


Your Pad Thai is almost ready! Transfer it to a serving dish and garnish with some more crushed peanuts and a lime wedge. Serve hot and enjoy the delicious flavors of Thailand in every bite.
