{Recipe} Skillet Pad Thai // Just Picked CocoWater

 Pad Thai is definitely one of my favourite Thai food, apart from Thai Green Curry, Basil Chicken, Mango Sticky Rice etc ;)

Pad Thai is a common street food found in Thailand, basically stir-fried flat rice noodles with egg, peanuts, shallots, sprouts, tofu, meat (usually prawn or chicken) and usually a squirt of lime. A wonderful mixture of savoury, sweet, sour and spicy flavours :)

15g tamarind paste, dissolved in 1/4cup water

    2. Bring a pot of water to boil.
    3. Add in dried rice noodles into boiling water and turn heat to medium low (take about 3mins to soften).
