PAD THAI RECIPE -Delicious Thai Dishes

Easy Pad Thai recipe.

Originally Pad Thai FOOD RECIPES are made with Shrimp or Chicken but I modified to make it as vegetarian pad Thai recipe. It is all up to you to add Shrimp, Chicken or add more veggies.


Pad Thai is one of the most popular Thai dishes. I am making this hub for popular Thai recipe on the request of “Countrywomen” who is a Thai food lover interested in experimenting Thai cooking herself. This recipe is the original Pad Thai recipes, which is non-vegetarian but please just remove the ingredients, Shrimp, Fish sauce to make it a perfect vegetarian Pad Thai. I used minimum ingredients but there are more ingredients to change or improve the taste but they are not necessary to make a simple real Thai recipes Pad Thai.


1 Lime
2 Eggs
6 Teaspoons fish sauce - adjust according to your taste. (Vegetarian can substitute it for salt or soy sauce)
6 Cloves garlic minced
1-Teaspoon ground dried chili pepper - adjust according to your taste before blaming me.
3-Tablespoon sugar
1 lbs Thai rice noodles
4-Tablespoon cooking oil
1 or 1/2 lb Shrimp (Vegetarian don’t need to add Shrimp because Tofu is already included for protein)
1/2lbs Tofu - extra firm (Fried ready to use)
4 Tablespoons peanuts (People allergic to Peanuts don’t need to add)
1-Tablespoon white vinegar
Add bean sprouts according to your need.

Preparation method:

Soak the Rice noodles in water, for 20 minutes. Slice the tofu into small long strips Mince the garlic too. Use a big pot or a wok, put it on medium heat pour the chopped peanuts in the wok and toast them until they turn brown do not add any oil to toast the peanuts. When the peanuts are ready remove it from the wok and put it in a container.

Now pour the oil in the wok, put it on medium heat, add garlic and tofu, and stir-fry them until they are brown. Remove the water from the noodles and put them into the wok. Keep stirring them to avoid sticking to the wok. Add sugar, fish sauce, and chili pepper and keep Stirring. Now turn heat on high, move the noodles in the wok on the side to make room in the middle of the wok.

Crack the eggs into the empty area of the wok and scramble it until cooked now mix the eggs into the noodles. Add the shrimps and stir until cooked, add bean sprouts, Vinegar and Stir until the noodles are soft.

Voila, now you are a newly invented Thai chef, you successfully made one of the most popular Thai dish Pad Thai. Well what are you waiting for serve yourself, your loved ones, and my mouth is watering too. Pour the hot Pad Thai into plates and sprinkle with peanuts. Serve it with a sliced wedge of lime.

Hi Mama Kim 8,

Welcome to my Hub, I sure a skillful cook like you will be able to modify the Pad Thai recipe to your own taste.

I love kimchi and whenever I go to Korean restaurant, I eat lots of it.

Kimchi is usually given as appetizer, Kimchi is the heart of Korean food.

I look forward for the Kimchi Hub.

Mr. Nice, in reply to your fan mail.. My mother-in-law makes amazing kimchi and I learn new things from her often. As soon as I have mastered kimchi myself I will surely make a hub about it.

Hi Tripathi,

I like some Malaysian dishes too very delicious. Their spices are influenced by Indian spices because they add Turmeric. So it's totally different taste than Thai spices. I like Nasi lamak, Nasi Goreng & one of their soup don't remember the name.

oh right. i was focused on eating out and not cooking it at home.

when cooking, i would use the shrimp for this recipe. i fancy well-seasoned, spicy shrimp. and in the south, fresh shrimp pickup trucks sit on empty lots and highways and are loaded down with large ice chests filled with gulf of mexico shrimp.

i passed an on-the-side-of-road-vendor yesterday, selling fresh shrimp. i should have taken his picture for your hub :)

Hi newsworthy, welcome to my hub. This recipe is for 4 or more servings depending on people. You can adjust any ingredients you like according to your taste.

Everything in the recipe sounds great excluding the 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Perhaps I can order with less sugar?

Hi cindyschulson,

Thailand is wonderful right. I mostly stay in Bangkok & travel near by cities. In Bangkok they also have night food vendors market, you can have all the delicious foods cooked right there. There is so much activities for all ages. One can never get bore in Thailand.

I made this recipe simple & did not include other optional add ons to it. I will add more recipes but enjoy this one for now. Visit my other link mentioned above for other Thai recipes too.
