"Kway Teow Pad Thai" meaning "fried rice noodles, Thai style" is a dish that was designed in the 1940s to be the Thai version of Chinese noodles. It's done with rice noodles instead of wheat noodles, as rice was in abundance in Thailand. The dish was then promoted by the Thai Government to build a sense of national identity among Thais, and has since become the world's favourite Thai street food dish.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the noodles

    For dried noodles, boil the noodles for 8 mins over a medium heat until tender, but still a little chewy. Then drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water. For fresh noodles, save them to add in at Step 3. 

  • 2.

    Fry the prawns

    Place a wok over medium-high heat and then add 1 tbsp of oil. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 1 min (or 2 mins if using raw prawns).

    Push the prawns to the side and crack the egg into the space. Let it set a little bit then break the yolk and stir fry the egg. Then mix with the prawns. 

  • 3.

    Add the Thai flavours

    Add the PAD THAI PASTE to the pan and fry for 1 min.

    Add the noodles (cooked ones from before or fresh noodles, if using) and the TAMARIND SAUCE, and stir well.

    Add most of the spring onions (keep a few for garnish later) and the bean sprouts and stir to mix. (Tongs really help here).

    Add the THAI TOMATO PASTE and stir fry for 2 more mins. 

  • 4.


    Serve the Pad Thai with crushed peanuts on top along with the rest of your spring onions. Squeeze a lime (if using) over everything.

Difficult to get the noodles but lovely

Fiona - Feb 15, 2019

Struggled a little with this one. It was very tasty as all of the dishes have been so far. I added a bit of chicken too. My problem was the noodles. I found it really hard to separate them and as such when I served the meal one of us had lots of noodles and the other bean sprouts and chicken/prawn.

Karen - Feb 14, 2019

Bit dry but ok for a very quick meal, probably won’t order it again

Gerald - Feb 14, 2019

Wasn’t awful. Just didn’t have a strong enough flavour

Laura - Feb 13, 2019

The prawns went a bit tough even though I cooked them only for the amount of time on the card.

Donna - Feb 13, 2019

Loved this!

Ashleigh - Feb 12, 2019

Nice meal. Just felt it lacked a little flavour, there was nothing punchy in it, just a little bland

Alison - Feb 12, 2019

Amazing! So tasty!!

Gareth - Feb 11, 2019

One of the more disappointing recipes so far for me- the flavours were ok but it all turns into a bit of a mush in the pan!

Leigh - Feb 10, 2019

So so

Malaika - Feb 07, 2019

Not pad thai!

Ruth - Feb 07, 2019

Very nice

linda - Feb 06, 2019

We loved this, didn't have peanuts and it was ok without but will have them next time. thumbs up from us

mohit - Feb 06, 2019

Added some more tamarind and chilli sauce. Think the quantity of sauce was less for this dish. Squeezed lots of lime to give it that zing.

Neil - Feb 06, 2019

So simple to make and eat. Delicious

Jessica - Feb 04, 2019

Absolutely loved this and the family loved it too. So so easy to cook!

Caroline - Jan 31, 2019

Very nice flavours. I added shredded carrot,mushrooms and peppers. Would recommend this dish.

Sarah-Jessica - Jan 26, 2019

This is 3rd meal I have tried and didn’t know what to expect from the reviews but myself & husband loved it. I used chicken as well as prawns and added mushrooms I also added the peanuts and lime, my husband loved spicy food but I don’t but we found it very tasty & a good flavour, We both loved it and would order again.

Emma - Jan 23, 2019

I love Thai food but I found this to be bland and far from authentic. Probably my least favourite from simply cook so far

Isaac - Jan 21, 2019

Quite a tasty dish. I used more prawns than the recommended 160g though as it wasn’t enough. 300g for 2 portions.

Nadia - Jan 21, 2019

Very easy to cook but super bland and lacking in flavour
