Method for Pad Thai

1. Soak  the rice stick noodles in warm water until they start to get soft. (Noodles should be a bit flexible and solid, not completely expanded and soft)

2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok at medium-high heat. Add egg and cook it quickly, scrambling into small pieces. (Remove, set aside)

3. Add 2 tablespoons of oil in the same wok. Add prawn and cook until they start turning pink. Transfer to a bowl, set aside.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok. Add shallots, radish and tofu fry until aromatic. Increase the heat of your wok.

5. Add a handful of soaked noodles followed by the ½ cup of water. Stir-fry this mixture for about 5-6 minutes. The noodles will start to get soft. Add Pad Thai Sauce and mix well.

5. Add cooked egg, bean sprout, chive and cooked prawn. Stir well for another 1-2 minutes until everything blends together. Turn off heat, transfer to serving plate with sliced fresh lime, roasted peanuts and more bean sprouts on the side.

6. Adjust the flavour if desired using Thai chilli powder , sugar and lemon juice.
