"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!

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

Really nice. We added some sprouting broccoli to add a bit extra veg. Enjoyed the dish

Something missing from this! I love the idea of it but it’s not hit the spot like others have.

Sarah - 3rd August 2020

Very tasty

Amy - 3rd August 2020

I like pad Thai and have cooked it several times from scratch. This was nice, if a bit bland. I won’t order again as I know it’s not better than my own version

Rebecca - 2nd August 2020

Also works well with fine rice noodles instead of the flat variety.

DAVID - 30th July 2020

Pretty good, wasn't as much as you usually get volume wise, used peppers and carrot cos I didn't have beansprouts, would have it again

Isabella - 27th July 2020

The taste was nice but the prawns got really dry by the time I added everything else in...I think it would be better if the order was changed so that prawns were added more towards the end of the process

Easy recipe and it tasted nice but it wouldn't be my favourite.

Heather - 19th July 2020

I love Pad Thai and this one was very good! I used chicken instead of prawns (thinly sliced) lime and peanuts definitely elevate this dish.
