As the name suggests, Pad Thai is a cuisine of Thailand and is one of its most popular dishes enjoyed all over the world. I dont prefer cooked eggs in my food, so have a vegan version of the dish.
I have used Peanut oil for this dish since it brings out that flavour of asian cooking. My recipe is as below:
Spread the Cornstarch on a plate. Coat the Tofu sqaures with the flour. Heat a non stick pan,spray it with PAM spray or little olive oil and place the Tofu's on the pan. Turn them after 4-5 min. Repeat till the tofu's have been browned. Set aside.
Cook the noodles as per the instruction in the package. Set aside.
Heat a pan with peanut oil. Stir in the onions, garlic,carrots and cook till soft.
Add the bell pepper,snow peas,tofu,soy sauce,tamarind paste and stir fry on high heat for 5-6 min taking care not to break the tofu.
Add the noodles and mix well. Add salt and mix well. Continue to stir fry on high heat for another 2-3 min till the noodles mix well.
Hi - Thank you for the simple and healthy recipe! I tried it and came out awesome. Few tweaks - I used Hoisin sauce for the sweet and sour flavor. And omitted the tamarind. Thanks again! :)
I have never tried Pad thai!!And ur recipe sounded[and tasted] wonderful.Lil Angel enjoyed it :)
You can of course add it, as per your preference :) --DK
You actually wrote exactly what I was planning to with respect to lemon and tamarind ( and thanks for reminding me about this post! Have to revamp it with better photos!). I am extremely gratified with what you have written - makes me glad about this site and my reasons for doing it. Luv to your little ones. I have one myself and I know the role that amma's samayal plays in their appetites...but come to think of it, I love my mom (till date) for doing just that for me. I know cooking and stuff now, but when she came to visit me last time, I cannot forget the boundless joy eating the poori that my mom made for me. Pooris never tasted better! --DK
