Perfecting the Art of Pad Thai Recipes
Pad Thai is the most famous recipe to come out of Thailand and it is really distinctive. This recipe is based on rice noodles and a sweet, spicy, slightly sour sauce made with ingredients like lime juice, fish sauce and chilies.
Tofu and egg also feature in this Thai recipe, as well as green onions, garlic and other flavorful ingredients. The key to making the best Pad Thai is to carefully balance the flavors, bringing the sweet, salty, spicy and sour flavors into perfect harmony within the dish.
This is much simpler than it sounds and you can let your taste buds guide you. If the dish is too sweet then add some lime juice or vinegar. If it is not salty enough then add soy sauce or a pinch of salt.
If it is too sour you can add more sugar. Add whatever you think is needed and then taste again and readjust if necessary. The more you practice this style of cooking, the better at it you will become.
A lot of people think they know all about Pad Thai but unfortunately Western restaurants try to make this for Westernized palates, adding way too much oil, making the dish too sweet and not sour enough.
This means they are unbalancing the flavors, and offering a bright red gloopy mess of noodles instead of the semi-dry reddish brown noodle dish it is supposed to be.
The best way to experience and understand Pad Thai is either to visit Thailand and eat at one of the roadside Pad Thai stalls or use one of our recipes to make your own authentic Thai meal.
